Dixons Academies Trust


High quality leadership empowers teachers to teach and enables students to learn. Many of our academy leaders are home-grown and we work hard to retain and develop our very best talent. We also recruit leaders externally who align closely with our mission and values. Our principals' main focus is to improve the life chances of their own students. They work with the support of other principals and our executive, and also in partnership with them for the good of all Dixons students and staff across our trust.
