Pastoral Care

We are recognised for the excellent pastoral care we provide to pupils who enjoy a warm and caring school community. We truly value and support one another, encouraging our pupils to embrace their unique strengths and potential.

Our exceptional standard of pastoral care ensures that each individual has the confidence to contribute and succeed at every stage of their school life. Pupils are supported by Mrs Jenny Muir, Assistant Head: Pastoral and Safeguarding Lead, Form Tutors, dedicated Heads of Year and Mrs Joyce our school nurse. Additionally, the pastoral team is supported by two counsellors and external agencies as necessary and appropriate.

We firmly believe in valuing pupils for who they are and not just for what they can do. Each of our pupils is encouraged and supported to achieve their academic and social potential with personal, vocational and academic guidance along the way.

Our pastoral curriculum encourages the development of these skills through PSHCE lessons, visits from external speakers, involvement in national anti-bullying and mental health campaigns as well as the opportunity to join and lead our pupil social action and wellbeing groups. As a result, pupils are afforded opportunities to develop and exercise important life skills.

Bus Routes

Pupils from across Lincolnshire and the surrounding area attend our school and we are pleased to offer a number of school buses serving routes in the following areas: Kirton Lindsey, Horncastle, Woodhall Spa, Sleaford, Grantham, Newark, Louth, Retford and Market Rasen. We also offer a service that collects pupils from Lincoln Train Station.

Bus Timetable


Mealtimes are an essential part of school life and can make the difference between a good day and a great one, a sluggish afternoon or feeling energised and ready to learn. We believe in instilling a love and awareness of healthy eating and the benefits of a balanced diet from a very young age. Eating is also a social occasion and throughout the school it is a chance for teachers and pupils to sit down together and enjoy good food, freshly prepared on each site by our dedicated catering teams.

Locally sourced ingredients form the basis of our menus wherever possible across the school, and we are proud members of the Select Lincolnshire scheme. We have been delighted to win the ‘Teaching Establishment of the Year’ at the 2018 Lincolnshire Food and Drink Awards.

Both of our kitchens, at Preparatory and Senior sites, hold a full five-star hygiene award from the City of Lincoln Council in recognition of our high standards of hygiene practices, training and management skills: awards of which we feel justly proud.

We are committed to meeting the dietary requirements of our pupils and cater for allergies, intolerances and special diets in a discreet and respectful way.

Our menus run on a three-week rotation with new menus introduced at the start of each term.
