Philosophy and Aims

We are proudly non-selective, offering an all-through education in a nurturing and stimulating environment

We aim to provide an environment that sets high expectations, facilitating stretch and challenge, where each child is stimulated to fulfil their potential in preparation for the next stage of their education and future employment.

Through an inspiring curriculum, exciting clubs, activities and trips, excellent academic and pastoral support, and dedicated and caring staff, we provide each and every one of our pupils with an ‘education for life’.

Through encouraging active involvement in a wide variety of inclusive co-curricular opportunities pupils are engaged in school life, engendering a spirit of community and co-operation. By working alongside pupils with different languages, perspectives, cultures and ways of working and learning, an understanding of a globalised future is developed, broadening understanding and preparing pupils for a life in global markets.

Lincoln Minster School seeks ways to develop pupils and staff with the willingness and skills to work effectively together in all we do, fostering long-lasting connections with local schools, the wider Lincoln community and United Learning schools to share facilities and to promote good practice. Alongside collaboration we support individualised 1:1 learning. We engage with our alumni and Friends of LMS to build a vibrant society supporting each other and the School.

Philosophy and Aims at Lincoln Minster School

The highest standards of personal conduct are expected and, by matching what we say with what we do, we engender a spirit of mutual trust and co-operation.  Robust systems of communication through the whole community enables us to listen and be responsive to the views of others, developing a sense of openness, honesty and integrity

Our inspiring staff seek new and different ways to engage with the challenge of educating pupils for the twenty first century by meeting the needs of the curriculum in all its forms and extending beyond its constraints. Diversity is valued and pupils encouraged to be curious and independent minded to give them the skills to move on from school with confidence in their abilities.

At LMS we value everyone equally, building self-esteem and self-respect by demonstrating respect and care for people, ideas and our environment. We recognise the importance of things that enrich life beyond material possessions, which contribute to a sense of wellbeing, fulfilment and wonder, developing LMS as a rich and socially diverse community.
