We want our students to feel as connected to their community as they do to their academy so fundraising and social enterprise activities are particularly strong in Dixons Academies.
Our students are hardworking and diligent young people who care about the world and making it a better place. We ensure that they not only have an awareness of social issues, but work hard to champion work in the areas they care about. As a result, every school within the trust hosts fundraising events and most of these are led by the students themselves. A notable example of this is the Syrian Action Team at Dixons City Academy who hosted a welcome reception for 50 refugees.
