Are you interested in astronomy? The Countryside Charity have developed a challenge for you to try. Each year, the CPRE ask the nation to help measure light pollution in their area by getting starry-eyed with them and counting visible stars. 

You can join in by choosing a clear night between the 6-14 February 2021, looking up at the constellation of Orion and letting them know how many stars you can spot. 

This year, they're asking everyone to take part from home. You can stargaze from your garden, balcony, doorstep or even bedroom window. 

They will give you plenty of support on how to do this. Once you've done your star-spotting, they will share a form with you where you can quickly and easily send the your count. 

For more details, please follow the link below:

It is with great sadness that we must inform you of the passing of Jim Baker in the County Hospital after a short illness.

Jim was a unique personality in our history, a member of the Science department in Lincoln School from 1970, four years before the creation of Lincoln Christ's Hospital School.

He was a presence here for fifty years, a treasured and active colleague even after he retired, always courteous and forever enthusiatic about education.

Normally we would have welcomed visitors to The Garton Archive, but in 2020 everything at LCHS is online because of the social distancing rules. This year's Lincolnshire theme is 'Past and Pastimes'. We have two focal points. One is "Plays for Bubbles", the previously unpublished scripts of 1950's productions from Lincoln School and the Girls' High School. The other is "Plays and Players 1974-2019", the story of school productions over the last 45 years with a commentary and galleries of photos and items from most 'shows'. More details are posted on https://www.christs-hospital.lincs.sch.uk/our-school/heritage-open-days-2020
