Uniform & Stationery
Lincroft places great emphasis upon a neat personal appearance and the maintenance of school uniform. We rely absolutely on the support of parents in ensuring the uniform is worn smartly and with a sense of pride. Some of the uniform may be purchased on the High Street (e.g. trousers, shirts) but we also ensure that there is a distinctive feel and style to the uniform to encourage and foster a sense of pride in the School’s identity. We use a school wear specialist provider Price & Buckland.
Orders should be made online at www.pbparentsonline.co.uk/lincroft The uniform policy can be found at the bottom of this page.
The guidelines on uniform, hairstyles, jewellery and make-up must be followed. If in doubt, speak to your child’s Form Tutor before making changes which might bring your child into conflict with school guidelines. If there are any queries regarding dress and appearance, it is vital that the school is contacted first before any items are purchased or appearances changed.
