Sport at Lincoln Minster School

Sport and Physical Education are an important part of school life.

A wide range of activities are available to boys and girls both for talented individuals who have particular interests, and also for those whose motivation is more recreational and social.

We firmly believe that sport is for everyone and aim to ensure that children of all abilities and aptitudes have a positive experience and learn to appreciate the enjoyment and benefits to be gained from physical activity.

Sport plays a key role in developing life skills.

Teamwork, communication, testing ourselves to the limit, maintaining concentration and stamina are all important. It is also essential in keeping young bodies fit and healthy as they grow.

The skills developed at an early age can provide each individual with the ability to stay fit and healthy throughout life.

Jack HarveyJack Harvey – Class of 2012

Racing driver in the Verizon Indycar Series


“Without a shadow of doubt my time at Lincoln Minster School helped me get to where I am today.

The support I received from the school was more than I could have hoped to get which did allow me to focus on racing. There was of course an expectation that I worked hard while I was there.”
