Welcome to St Francis Special School Lincoln

Part of The Federation of The St Francis Special School Lincoln and The Lincoln St Christopher’s School


Across the Federation we cater for pupils between the ages of 2 to 19 with wide ranging special educational needs including physical and medical needs, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and social communication difficulties and severe and profound learning difficulties.


Both schools enjoy excellent facilities and provide high quality, individualised provision for all pupils by working closely with other professionals.


The over-riding aim of our Federation is to provide an inclusive education in the most real sense; preparing young people to take a confident and active place in society, who are well prepared to meet the challenges of adult life, including the world of work, continuing education and independent living and the world of day care provision for those where further education is not the most appropriate next step after leaving school.


We are very proud of the Federation and are always pleased to welcome visitors. (Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are only able to offer a virtual tour) Whether you are a prospective parent and child, a colleague from another school or profession or a member of the local community please telephone either school and we will be happy to show you around.


We hope that you can find all of the information you need on our websites – if not, please do not hesitate to contact either St Francis School or St Christopher’s School with your query where Administrative Staff and Senior Staff of each site are available to talk to you.


SEND Building Project

As part of the 'Building Communities of Specialist Provision: Special School Strategy' St Francis School has been lucky enough to receive funding from the Local Authority to design and re-model our existing building and extend our school parking facilities. The building will be made fit for purpose with additional classrooms, plus re-located and re-modelled sensory spaces.  We are very excited about the new project and look forward to seeing it develop.
