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.

Powerful testimony from Camille on rising hate crime against ESEA communities to end @LeedsCitizens assembly with the main candidates to be the first Mayor of West Yorkshire. Outpouring of solidarity from almost everyone in the zoom made me feel hopeful. https://t.co/GLPIqgakx2
