Scholarships

Nurturing the talent of tomorrow.

Each year, we are proud to award Scholarships to pupils who are capable of extremely high levels of achievement and who we believe will make a significant contribution to the life of the school.

Scholarships are offered at entry into Years 7 through to 12 and existing pupils can also apply in Year 9. Awards vary and are dependent on a variety of factors, including references and assessment performance. Once awarded, they will be reviewed on a termly basis. If the criteria are met at every review, scholarships will continue for the duration of another term during the pupil’s time at Lincoln Minster School.

Each year, we are proud to award Scholarships to pupils who are capable of extremely high levels of achievement and who we believe will make a significant contribution to the life of the school.
Scholarships are offered at entry to Years 7, 9 and 12 for both existing pupils and external applicants.

Applications for Scholarships are accepted in November each year, with assessments taking place in the following January. The selection process may include an interview and either an assessment, audition, or evidence of achievement depending on the subject areas concerned. Academic Scholarships are assessed on an annual basis on our Scholarship Assessment Day. The process of evaluating results commences immediately. Pupils may apply for more than one discipline, however, pupils cannot apply for all scholarship disciplines and they will be asked to explain their choice of discipline if applying for multiple disciplines.

Lincoln Minster School seeks to promote accessibility by making alternative payment submission options available through both our Scholarship programme and means tested Fees Assistance as appropriate.
