I am very proud to be Principal
at Lincroft Academy. Within our vibrant learning community, we share a common
goal; to continually strive for excellence. At Lincroft, we maintain
exceptionally high expectations and standards in everything we do, ensuring
that our students receive the best possible education. We commit to educating,
inspiring and supporting our students so that they can become exceptional
learners, confident and empowered to make a rewarding contribution to society.
Our curriculum is designed to
seamlessly build upon the foundation laid in primary school, preparing our
students for post-16 education. High-quality teaching enables our students to
achieve very well. Lincroft Academy now has some of the highest performing GCSE
outcomes in Bedford and are above the national average. While we take immense
pride in our students’ achievements, we remain committed to continuous

is known, valued and supported to be the best they can be. Our foremost
priority is to create a safe and nurturing environment where students thrive.
We promote kindness, respect and good manners, just as families do at home, so
that our students can become decent adult citizens. Students at Lincroft are
well supported through our House System because they work with the same team of
staff throughout their Lincroft journey. This system of support fosters
belonging, ensures students are known well and strengthens relationships and
communication with families. Our comprehensive Inclusion Hub allows us to
provide tailored support to students, regardless of their background or needs.
Working alongside each other, being supportive and caring is integral to who we
are. Our partnership with parents and carers is highly valued and we know that
this is an essential part of a positive educational experience for our
Our staff are absolutely
committed to the education of our students; they are passionate, dedicated and
many of them send their children here too. Some of our ex-students now teach
here. This speaks volumes about the sense of community at Lincroft. The opportunities
provided at Lincroft are broad and many and, even then, continue to grow; from
sports to the arts, business and careers – our curriculum extends very much
outside the classroom. Our students consistently excel in sports and the arts,
enhancing our strong reputation in these areas.
We are proud to be part of
Meridian Trust, who look after a total of 30 academies including many in
Bedfordshire. We have access to extensive knowledge, expertise and resource,
not just at Lincroft, but across the entire Meridian network. This broader community
provides our students with additional opportunities and experiences alongside
their peers from other academies. This has also opened up investment
opportunities to help modernise the school building and facilities.
As a parent of two children
myself, I am personally committed to ensuring that the education we deliver at
Lincroft is nothing less than I would accept for my own children. Lincroft
Academy is a place where every child has the opportunity to realise their
potential. We warmly welcome you to our community.
