Fee Assistance

A bursary

Any parent may apply for a Bursary at any stage throughout the academic year, and bursary applications are considered following submission of the Bursary application form. The award of a Bursary focuses on supporting families with financial assistance, where family circumstances may otherwise make the school fees unaffordable.

How to apply

Application forms for all the above assistance are available from The Registrar, who can be contacted on 01522 551300 or at mandy.stuffins@lincolnminsterschool.co.uk  Please return completed application forms to The Registrar in the first instance.

Generally, Bursaries and Clergy Bursary applications are submitted by December, though late applications can be considered.  The annual review of awards normally takes place around April.


Other financial support

Sibling Discount

At Lincoln Minster School the first sibling of an attending pupil receives a 5% discount.  Second and subsequent siblings of attending pupils receive 10%.  When the oldest child leaves the school, the relevant discount for the siblings will adjust accordingly.

A Scholarship

Please see the Scholarships Information leaflet.  This gives details of which scholarships are offered to pupils at entry into Year 3, Year 7 and Year 12 and to new students coming into the school at Year 9.

NB: Discounts are applied to pupil accounts in the following order:  Sibling Discount; Staff Discount; a Scholarship or Choristership; an Assisted Place or Bursary
