Welcome to Lincroft Academy
We are justly very proud of Lincroft Academy – it is a school with an excellent reputation, which is well deserved. We provide outstanding teaching and pastoral care for the students, and we achieve excellent standards. Our sporting achievements, musical and dramatic traditions are also really second to none!
Our website, together with the prospectus, contains a great deal of information. Our very hardworking staff are approachable and caring and committed to providing the very best for the students. They encourage them to work hard, to enjoy and to achieve – Lincroft is a very happy school where students feel safe.
Between the ages of 11 to 16 the intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of the boys and girls will be dramatic. Their attitudes to themselves, their friends, their parents and the world will mature in response to a wide range of influences. We will help foster their self-esteem and they will grow in confidence as we develop their independence and individual talents.
As the students journey through Lincroft, their learning will become personalised as they reveal their strengths and develop their interests. Most will begin to specialise within the Academy's excellent curriculum, which uniquely extends to include three modern languages, as well as the extensive opportunities provided within the creative and performing arts and in sport and physical education. Our Performing Arts department carries the accreditation of being 'Artsmark Platinum' as do our Sports department for the accreditation of 'School Games Platinum'.
The transition of Lincroft from a middle school to a secondary academy took place in September 2017 as most of our Year 8 students stayed at Lincroft and became our first Year 9 year group, accepting the opportunities and responsibilities as young adults as they take their GCSEs in 2020.
We work very closely together with other schools that also form part of the Sharnbrook Academy Federation. Our students will also have the same opportunities as Sharnbrook Academy after GCSE and be able to apply for Sixth Form provision continuing at Sharnbrook.
Above all, however, we remember that you are your child’s first, best and most important teacher. It is together that we provide the children with an excellent education in preparation to face the demands of modern living. You will have our full commitment.
