Consultation to expand Dixons Sixth Form Academy Read more

Impact

The Dixons Academies Trust mission is to challenge educational and social disadvantage in the Bradford and Leeds region. We establish high-performing non-faith academies which maximise attainment, value diversity, develop character and build cultural capital.

To achieve our mission, all of our academies share six principles:

  • Empowered to lead
  • Relentless focus on learning
  • Values-driven
  • High expectations
  • Highly professionalised staff
  • Choice and commitment

The success of our academies in driving forward this mission has seen Dixons secure a long-established national reputation for excellence. We established the first free school in the country to be rated Outstanding by Ofsted; as well as placing 8th nationally in Progress 8. Beyond academic excellence, we have created a culture where students enjoy coming to school and parents are proud to send their children to a Dixons school with many of our academies achieving a 100% satisfaction rate in both these areas.

It is exciting that we now bring this reputation for excellence to the development of a Sixth Form institution.
