Lincoln Minster Preparatory School has been listed in the Sunday Times Parent Power Top 100 Preparatory Schools for the second year running, soaring up the league table to 44th place.
Schools are ranked by aggregated average scaled scores achieved by children in reading, spelling, grammar and maths in their SATs tests taken at the end of the primary phase in Year 6.
In 2016 the school, which is not academically selective, ranked in the Top 100 for the first time in 90th position. Just one year later it has soared to 44th position as a result of pupils’ attainment in the summer term.
This comes just weeks after a highly successful ISI inspection which graded the school as ‘Excellent’ for pupils’ personal development and ‘Good’ (with Excellent features) for pupils’ achievements.
Head of the Preparatory School, Fiona Thomas, who has led the Prep School since 2012 said: “Being listed in the Top 50 Independent Prep Schools is a wonderful achievement for Lincoln Minster School and comes at the same time as a more demanding curriculum and more rigorous SATs tests. The percentage of high scores achieved by our pupils is particularly impressive. At Lincoln Minster Preparatory School we have successfully managed to raise attainment, but have not compromised on our extensive enrichment offer, leading to a true education for life for every child.”
Lincoln Minster School Headmaster Mark Wallace said: “This achievement is further testament to the excellent work taking place at Lincoln Minster School from Nursery to Sixth Form; the efforts of the staff have been rewarded through the success of our pupils – both from a curricular and co-curricular point of view.”
