We provide our international students with ESOL lessons (English for Speakers of Other Languages). Our ESOL Department includes highly-qualified teachers who liaise closely with curriculum teachers to ensure that all students’ needs are met.

ESOL classes are generally small – typically 2-8 students – and the school has a proud record of students achieving exceptionally high IELTS scores and passing advanced Cambridge EFL suite exams.

We prepare our pupils for university life, offering specialist English for Academic Purposes lessons.

2 + 3 Programme

Lincoln Minster School and the University of Lincoln have teamed up to offer a unique study experience in one of the UK’s most dynamic and historic cities.

Pupils choosing to study for their A Levels at Lincoln Minster School, followed by an undergraduate degree at the University of Lincoln, can enjoy an exclusive scholarship to support their studies.

This scholarship offers pupils the chance to benefit from an outstanding five-year education programme with access to Gold Standard teaching, excellent links to industry and tailored careers advice.

The 2+3 Programme offers a bespoke direct pathway to Higher Education for our international pupils.

Those who study their A Levels at Lincoln Minster School can benefit from a direct route to further study at the University of Lincoln.

The programme is innovative within the education sector and is the future for international education and relationships.

We are proud to represent an exclusive pathway to an education for life.

“Lincoln is truly a unique place to live in and to learn in. Imagine studying in a city that has over a 1000 year history, juxtaposed with a thriving and growing Industry across sectors, to learn from and contribute to.

Students who choose to study at this safe and stunning city, have the opportunity to gain their education at the world-class Lincoln Minster School with a range of high quality and modern facilities and then a seamless pathway into the TEF Gold standard, Top 50 ranked University of Lincoln with an array of courses on offer, to specialize in.

We are particularly proud of the collaboration that has been set up with Lincoln Minster School, to arm the students with information, in their last few years at school, as they begin to think about their future choices. It’s not uncommon to have A Level students get work placement exposure at the University or indeed an academic from the University conduct a workshop on the school premises.
The International nature of our student body – both at the Lincoln Minster School and the University of Lincoln, ensures that we both have the environment that supports and celebrates the best of what International students bring to us. In addition to cultural interaction and participation, the collaboration has ensured that we nurture, engage and embrace the unique perspectives that each culture brings and gifts us, via their students”.
