Music at Lincoln Minster School

We are proud of our outstanding reputation for music – not just in the Senior School but right from the start in Pre-Preparatory, where the foundations are enthusiastically laid for a lifelong love of music.

Music is absolutely central to life at Lincoln Minster School.

Pupils of all ages are encouraged to participate whether through playing, composing or attending concerts and recitals.

Our links with Lincoln Cathedral underline this musical focus, and the experience of performing and hearing music in the wonderful cathedral setting is one that our students will take with them and remember forever.

Listen to some of our pupil’s music performances.

“The pupils amaze me with their wonderful musical achievements both inside and outside of school.”

The ongoing dedication and enthusiasm of our students sees Lincoln Minster School host a number of concerts right through from Pre-Prep to Sixth Form.
