Welcome to Lincroft Academy
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.
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
Every child at
Lincroft Academy 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 students.
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.
