Examination Results 2021

Posted on 13.08.2021

Overall, we are pleased that none of the grades we submitted to the exam boards were changed at any of our academies. This is a testament to the incredible hard work, commitment and dedication of our students and staff, especially over the last few months.

A Level successes

Dixons Sixth Form Academy

  • Superb first ever results: +1.02 value added for Academic; +1.03 for Vocational
  • 83% of students secured a place at their first choice university; 40% to Russell Group
  • 10 students secured a place to study medicine, 3 will study dentistry and 3 earned a place at Oxford (these successes represent 6% of the cohort)

Dixons Allerton Academy

  • Continued strong performance: +0.83 value added for Academic; +0.62 for Vocational
  • 90% of students secured a place at their first choice university
  • 1 student secured a place to study medicine and a significant number of students will study pharmacy or another medicine related course
GCSE successes
  • Across our academies, results are slightly lower than 2020, but stronger than 2019
  • Our teacher assessed grades were robust and headline results are in line with what we would have expected to achieve had students sat external examinations
  • Strong results for disadvantaged students across our academies – bucking the national trend:
    • At Kings and McMillan, disadvantaged students made more progress than other students in the academy (and nationally in 2019)
    • At Allerton, City and Trinity, disadvantaged students made more progress than other students nationally in 2019
