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.

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.
