Ascension Day

Each Ascension Day, our Year 5 pupils are invited to Lincoln College. The children collect pennies on the main quad, which have been thrown from the tower above. In its present form, the ritual is far more safety conscious than it was in times gone by, since coins were once red hot, in order to warn children of the perils of greed! The highlight of the visit is the amazing lunch provided in the college dining hall, which includes doughnuts.
