Art at Lincoln Minster School

We are proud of our progressive, contemporary, exciting and stimulating Art Department.

“I am delighted that I chose to send my daughter to Lincoln Minster School as the nature, depth and quality of the artwork she is undertaking far exceeds that of her friends in her previous school, and she absolutely loves Life Drawing.”

Sixth Form Art

We have a highly specialist team of staff who are not only passionate about the subject but also themselves practising artists.

We meet the individual creative needs of all of our students, allowing them to mature artistically; this process is enhanced by individual tutorials, extra-curricular activities and study trips.

“We have been impressed by the quality and quantity of the work presented for the portfolio interview.”

University of East Anglia

100% of our pupils attain an A*-C grade at GCSE with portfolio submissions resulting in direct entry into university.

Individual workspaces provide a professional studio-based environment for pupils to work in.

Pupils also hold exhibitions both within school and the wider community, offering them the opportunity to promote and sell their work.

“The arts department at Lincoln Minster School really enabled me to develop an understanding of my own artistic ability.
“I am grateful to the school for the skills I learnt that have allowed me to continue perusing arts up to this point and will no doubt help in the future as well.”

At our Preparatory School we strive to provide pupils with opportunities to be creative and develop practical skills.

Through undertaking projects in a range of mediums, experiences and starting points, it is hoped that pupils will be empowered to take more responsibility of, and be enthused in, their own learning.

With the guidance from skilled practitioners, it is hoped that Art will be a source of pleasure for all pupils who will, consequently, become increasingly confident in their own abilities.
