The school was designed by the City Architect; the initial number on roll was 690 pupils.It became a mixed comprehensive school in 1974 (shown here) following amalgamation with the Sincil Secondary Modern School.

The main block facing Skellingthorpe Road has been rebuilt since 2010.

The 4th Northern General Hospital was set up in Lincoln School on Wragby Road at the beginning of World War I in August 1914.

By early October, the hospital cared for over 200 wounded Belgian soldiers. Many of the wards were in wooden buildings which had been quickly erected on the school playing field.

The school itself was housed in temporary classrooms at the junction of St Anne's Road and Sewell Road.
