Sixth Form

A Level study in an exciting, vibrant and dynamic learning community

Sixth Form

A unique and enviable studying experience.

Our vision is to cultivate an independent learning community where each pupil feels a sense of belonging; motivated and determined to make the most of every opportunity.

The exceptional quality of our pastoral care ensures that time in our Sixth Form is spent productively, whilst being successful, fulfilling and enjoyable. Together, we work towards promoting progress, through providing an enriching, engaging and challenging study programme.

We are proud to offer five hours per week of teaching for each A Level subject studied, as well as dedicated co-curricular time for pupils to get involved in a variety of clubs and activities.

Opening up doors

We regularly achieve in the region of 90% of all pupils gaining entry into their first-choice university, as well as having managed to secure places on competitive apprenticeships with companies such as Siemens and BAE Systems.

Sixth Form study is challenging but immensely rewarding. The expectation is that our pupils will become increasingly enterprising and emerge as skilled, knowledgeable and competent independent learners.

Sixth Form at Lincoln Minster School

Preparation for the future

All pupils are entered for the highly regarded Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) where they independently choose a topic and question to research, write up and present. Frequently, students choose to focus on an area of personal interest which is directly relevant to their Higher Education subject choice and which helps demonstrate their interest and commitment as well as developing their specialist vocabulary and knowledge.

Providing a curriculum that is rich in academic rigour, breadth and variety is essential. We offer an extensive choice of A Level courses as well as vocational options for students with the introduction of BTECs in Travel and Tourism, and Music, CTEC Business and a Level 3 Certificate/Diploma in Food Science and Nutrition.

We are confident that with our broad and inclusive curriculum for Post-16 study, as well as specialist teachers and outstanding academic and pastoral support, we can meet the needs and requirements of each and every one of our pupils.

Sixth Form entry

Places are offered subject to satisfactory GCSE predictions and results. Additionally, pupils will be expected to meet the specific subject entry requirements for their Post-16 study choices. International applicants must pass our entrance examinations.

More information can be found in our Sixth Form Curriculum Guide.

Space, the final frontier - the school curriculum by Year 7 Pupil - Hermione

31 January 2020

LMS News Club is for budding young reporters. This report from Hermione Rolfe was her suggested topic based on a strong personal interest in space and astronomy. Her ideas and enthusiasm for everything to do with space are great - she's even got me reading up about nebula, now! Her main idea is that Space should be a larger part of the secondary school curriculum, maybe even a separate subject. Read her article and see if you agree!

What Students and Parents Say About us

My daughter attends Lincoln Minster Sixth Form, and I have found it to be fantastic. The teachers are so helpful.

Parent, 2018

There is so much support in so many areas, subject teachers, mentoring, school nurse, ESOL, tutors all offer so much. We have lots of different clubs to choose from. The Sixth Form community offers perfect opportunities, from doing EPQ, Young Enterprise, being able to apply for prefect. The class sizes are small, so you build a really good relationship with your teacher
