Lincoln Minster School is situated in the very heart of the prestigious and historical Bailgate area of the city of Lincoln, just two hours by train from London. The school sits beside the world-famous landmarks of Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle, home to an original copy of the Magna Carta.
The school benefits from a mix of the old and the new with its links to the cathedral, as well as to the two highly regarded and established universities in the city, the University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University. Both universities are only a 10-minute walk from the school, and the school works collaboratively and closely in several areas with both universities.
Lincoln Minster School offers an exciting 2+3 programme to its international pupils, which provides a bespoke, direct pathway to higher education. Pupils choosing to study for their A levels at Lincoln Minster School, followed by an undergraduate degree at the University of Lincoln, can enjoy an exclusive scholarship to support their studies. This scholarship offers pupils the chance to benefit from an outstanding five-year education programme with access to gold-standard teaching and excellent links to industry and tailored careers advice. The programme is innovative within the education sector and is the future for international education and relationships.
Being situated in a vibrant, compact and safe city has made Lincoln Minster School an attractive destination for international pupils in recent times, with so many opportunities on the school’s doorstep. These opportunities exist in many areas of academia, sport and the creative arts.
The school’s Golf Performance Programme, launched in September 2018, is unique and tailored to each pupil participating. Offered to both UK and international pupils, it is delivered in partnership with PING, Lincoln Golf Centre, Market Rasen Golf Club and Woodhall Spa Golf Club, the home of England Golf, giving pupils access to world-class facilities. The programme provides an outstanding education alongside the development of participants’ golf skills through high-quality coaching from industry experts – Neil Harvey of England Golf, a PGA advanced member who is experienced in developing winners at elite level in all age groups, and Paul Logan from Lincoln Golf Centre, a PGA golf professional ranked fifth in Europe.
The school is also in the process of developing similar programmes for squash and tennis, so watch this space!
Lincoln Minster School’s intention is to provide an inspiring ‘education for life,’ from two years of age all the way through to its A level pupils. Individual needs are catered for across all age groups, enabling boys and girls, of differing abilities and interests, to excel.
The school’s vibrant community, where pupils can develop their leadership, academic and cocurricular skills, has a blend of day pupils and boarders, both from overseas and from the UK, and this broad social and cultural mix ensures the school is outward facing in all that it does.
Lincoln Minster School encourages its pupils to challenge themselves, to test new skills and not to worry when they make a mistake but to learn from it. This way, its boys and girls develop the skill sets required to face the challenges that lie ahead.
