The Dixons Academies Trust is a company limited by guarantee and an exempt charity. This means we are regulated by the Department for Education rather than the Charity Commission.
Our academies are funded by the Department for Education on a per pupil basis in the same way as maintained schools. We also raise additional funds for education and enrichment programmes in our academies.
We aim to provide good value for money, and this is measured in terms of the educational and wider societal outcomes we achieve in return for the taxpayer resources we receive. A reasonable surplus ensures that we can put aside money every year for the upkeep and improvement of our facilities, as well as investment in areas like ICT.
