Dixons Academies Trust

Interim Communications Page for Dixons Brooklands Academy

Welcome to Dixons

Now that the school has officially converted to Dixons Academies Trust, we are working with the Dixons team to create our new website which will be launched later this year. In the meantime, we have set up this page so that we can communicate with parents.

Going forward, we will not be updating the Manchester Health Academy website. Letters, news and other information will be posted here and shared with parents via links using our usual channels (the app, text message etc).

From the Principal

After consultation with staff and students, the school has agreed on the following mission statement:

At Dixons Brooklands Academy, we provide a first-class education to maximise students’ opportunities to live a fulfilling life and make a difference in their community.

After consultation with staff and students, because Dixons Academies Trust is a values led organisation, the school has agreed on the following values:

Work Hard: we never give up; we do what it takes for as long as it takes. We are industrious and curious.

Have Integrity: we always do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.

Be Kind: we play by the rules. We are polite, considerate and kind.

Academy life is the embodiment of these values, and they underpin every routine and interaction.

The highest of expectations delivers the best outcomes and improves the lives of young people, so we are relentless in our work with students and families and this requires dedication and support from all members of our school community. We work hard, uphold our standards, treat everyone with kindness, and behind everything we do is the conviction that education and high expectations are the recipes for success.

I hope you find this page useful and please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help in any way.
