What says..

Choristers lead the way musically but many more pupils involved as well.

What the school says...

Lincoln Minster School prides itself on fulfilling its key aim: to bring our the best in everyone. This is a non selective school, achieving results many more selective schools would be proud of. Staff are genuinely committed to working with pupils to encourage and inspire and the ensuing achievements are as varied as they are impressive: musicians perfom to near professional standard; there are many talented sportsmen and women; academic results are very good and have climbed steadily in the last few years, due in no small measure to a sharp focus on quality of teaching and learning. The school makes extensive use of technology in the classroom.

Drama productions are also high calibre and the art courses are very popular. The school has close links with the nearby university. The opportunities for personal development are outstanding. Whether a child has a natural flair for sport, music, art, or enjoys academic study across the curriculum, or equally well if the child needs encouragement and has yet to develop the confidence to take a part and have a try, they will benefit from an education at Lincoln Minster School.
