Last year, #Bradford schools received more applications for teaching posts than they had the year before, suggesting more people are being drawn to our city.

I’m so proud of our staff, we are fully open and run a complete set of face to face lessons every week. Even better our students are on it - moving between their two long lessons each day like clockwork and studying hard.

Dixons Academies Trust

At Dixons, we are committed to making a difference where it matters most.  We work to improve the future for thousands of children in the parts of the north of England where young lives are adversely affected by social and educational disadvantage.

We believe that every child, regardless of their background, should be able to fulfil their academic potential and go on to thrive amongst the demands and expectations of 21st century life.

We are ambitious for every child we teach and want to see a society that benefits from the contributions of our well-educated and empowered young people who come through our network of high-performing non-faith academies.  We make a difference to young lives by being that difference and defying the disadvantage we see. 

Founded by Dixons City Academy, the former City Technology College, our Trust has almost thirty years’ experience of running our own affairs. Although our original sponsor, Lord Kalms of the then Dixons Stores Group, still takes a keen interest in us, we are now self-sponsoring and independent. We remain true to our original aims, however, and our ambition remains the same: to transform education in our region. 

Our family of schools includes primary, secondary, all-through and sixth form.  We focus exclusively on sponsored turnaround academies to address educational failure and on new free schools to meet growing demand.  Our diversity is a real strength of our model, balancing common alignment with the autonomy to innovate. Our start-ups are all graded Outstanding and our sponsored academies have all climbed at least two Ofsted grades with our backing.  This gives us a solid platform from which we continue to build responsibly: our Trust will continue to expand, from over 7,000 students now to at least 10,000 by 2022. 

We have achieved a great deal in a relatively short time, but such is the culture of expectation here that we know our greatest impact is yet to come. 

Sir Nick Weller
CEO, Dixons Academies Trust
