The City School a grammar school for boys - had occupied an awkward cramped site on Monks Road.

The City adopted a comprehensive scheme of secondary education and built this co-educational upper school (for 12 -18 year-olds) on Skellingthorpe Road in the south-west of the city.

The school was designed by the City Architect; the initial number on roll was 690 pupils.

Constance Stewart Hall is the largest residential block at Bishop Grosseteste University College.

It has over 100 bedrooms and is also a good self-contained base for small conferences.

It was built in the 1930s and has several strong Art Deco features.

It is named after a former principal of the college.

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.
