About Lincoln

A learning environment like no other.

Set in Lincoln’s Historic Cathedral Quarter, our Preparatory and Senior School sites are fully equipped to prepare our pupils for the careers of tomorrow, providing pupils with an inspiring environment in which to reach their potential.

The Preparatory School, a short walk from Lincoln’s Bailgate, has been extensively redeveloped, including the latest edition of a £250k outdoor learning and play facility.



Our Senior school site is made up of a number of buildings, both new and old. The main Prior Building was purpose-built and opened in 2002 by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey. The sweeping, curved building overlooks the city and boasts fully equipped science labs, art studios, IT suites and our dedicated Sixth Form Centre.

The Harper Building is dedicated to music and performance; it includes an impressive recital hall, music practice rooms and a fully-equipped drama studio, as well as a sports hall.

The sight of our pupils in their distinctive blazers and staff in their academic gowns processing to the Galilee Porch at Lincoln Cathedral for our end of term services and prizegiving ceremonies is a special one. It's a reminder of how important a sense of tradition is in a modern world and a modern school.
