Robert de Cheney Boarding House

Robert de Cheney Boarding House is a modern, state-of-the-art building which provides boarding facilities exclusively for Sixth Form students. In 2017, The Priory's boarding house was given an Outstanding rating by Ofsted. The House is situated in the grounds of The Priory Academy LSST in Lincoln, a top performing State school which also has an Outstanding Ofsted rating. In 2018, 90% of Priory students obtained places at their first or second choice universities, 35% of which were within the prestigious Russell Group.

The House has 60 full-time boarding places which are available for Sixth Form students drawn from the UK, British passport holders living overseas and students with an EU passport. There are no tuition fees for students in these categories; please find our boarding fee schedule here. Accommodation is available for both male and female students, all in single en-suite study bedrooms, on single-sex floors within the House.
At The Priory Academy LSST, we believe boarding education should be a richly rewarding and enjoyable time for students; an exciting period of self-development, and a wonderful opportunity for students to learn to live with others before making the transition to university life. As well as this, the House aims to provide a safe environment in which to feel part of a relaxed, supportive community that seeks to complement and enhance all their academic desires, aims and aspirations. In order to achieve this ethos, there is a high expectation in terms of behaviour and conduct from all our students, and there are clear guidelines and procedures that all Academy staff and students follow.
We provide a wide-ranging programme of extra-curricular activities while placing a strong emphasis on high academic pursuit. There are four residential staff, including the Head of Boarding, who all live in the House.
