How can we help?

We've supported many families as they've relocated to Lincoln or wider Lincolnshire. Our flexible admissions process means we can facilitate the trickiest of requirements that can arise in these circumstances.

  • Families can temporarily enrol their children into our Boarding house. This can help to prevent any disruption to their education as well as help them to get to know the school fully. This also gives parents the freedom to focus on relocation logistics, knowing their child/children are safe and happy.
  • Our Admissions process runs throughout the year for all year groups and, depending on circumstances, can be accelerated to allow you to enrol your child/children as quickly as possible. 
  • Pupils can experience life at Lincoln Minster School before an application is made via one of our Taster Days - an opportunity for children to take part in school lessons during the day. Find out more about our Admissions process, here.
  • Our Holiday Club is perfect for those looking to relocate during the school holidays. Preparatory-aged pupils are able to join the Holiday Club during each term break, including Summer, where they can enjoy exciting activities and new opportunities in a safe and friendly atmosphere.

Top Tips for Moving to a New City

1. Select a School

Although easier said than done, choosing the right school for your family ahead of moving will, of-course, be one of your top priorities. The earlier you can find a school, the more time you have to prepare yourself and your child for the transition. is just one of many websites that can help you to find the best schools in the area. We always recommend making a visit to the school, whether via an Individual Tour or even a Taster Day. 

2. Research the New Area

Deep dive into some detailed research to make sure you're prepared and familiar with the area. Consider routes to school and work, Wi-Fi and home-phone options, available community groups and anything else that will make the first few weeks in your new home much smoother.

3. Join the School Community
