Welcome to Lincoln Christ's Hospital School

Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School was formed in 1974 as a result of combining four schools; Lincoln School, Lincoln Christ’s Hospital Girls’ High School (subsequently referred to as Lincoln High School), St Giles Secondary School for Boys, and Myle Cross Secondary School for Girls. While Lincoln School’s history can be traced back to 1090, the other three schools were formed relatively recently; Lincoln High School in 1893 and the two secondary modern schools in 1933

Our aims are:-

  • To encourage high academic standards and to enable each student to achieve their potential.
  • To encourage personal high standards in work, conduct and presentation.
  • To devise a programme of study suitable for each student.
  • To provide academic and pastoral guidance to enable each student to succeed.
  • To provide all necessary guidance and preparation for entry to universities, colleges or employment.
  • To encourage every student to take a full and active part in the life of the school.

    The Sixth Form consists of approximately 340 students, the number varying slightly each year according to demand. The Pupil Admission Number (PAN) for Year 12 is 180. This is the minimum number we will admit, if students meet the criteria for the course they have applied for. Around three-quarters of the students will have been members of the school since the age of 11. The rest are admitted from neighbouring schools or are the sons/daughters of parents who have recently moved into the area. Thus, although the Sixth Form remains an integral part of the rest of the school, its style and ethos have some of the characteristics of a Sixth Form College and newcomers have no difficulty in integrating and settling down. Students may spend one, two or three years in the Sixth Form, depending on their individual needs. In the most recent Ofsted Report, Inspectors judged the effectiveness and efficiency of the Sixth Form to be good. ""Students achieve well in the Sixth Form, reaching broadly average levels of attainment from starting points that are well below average. Students achieve particularly well in AS Level courses. The increasing range of courses is enabling a growing number of students to achieve good qualifications, with nearly all moving on to higher education.""

    We are pleased to be working alongside Cherry Willingham Community School again this year. There is a simple joint application process and guidance is provided to help students choose suitable courses. Transport is provided for students to travel from Cherry Willingham to Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School at a reasonable cost to parents.
