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. At our Preparatory School Sport Scholarships are considered for pupils joining Year 5. Awards vary from a minimum of 5%, with the top award of 50% for exceptional potential and achievement; they are dependent on a variety of factors, including references and assessment performance. Once awarded, they will continue for the duration of the pupil’s time at Lincoln Minster School.
Scholarships are available across a variety of subjects including:
Academic – An exam covering English and Maths, and include general aptitude tests
Art – Outstanding artistic ability and commitment
Drama – Assessment based on audition
Music – Musicians with a minimum standard required per age group, assessment based on audition
New applicants can apply for Scholarships all year round on our website. The selection process may include an interview and either an assessment, audition, or evidence of achievement – depending on the subject areas. 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.
Lincoln Minster School seeks to promote accessibility by making alternative payment submission options available with both our Scholarship programme and means tested Fees Assistance if appropriate.
