Message from the Principal

Message from the Principal

I am very proud to be the Principal of Dixons Allerton Academy. We have a positive approach and a firm commitment to achieve our goal of becoming an outstanding academy at the heart of our community, where every person is valued. Our vision is to provide high quality education and training, enriched throughout by technology, for the benefit of our students, staff and the wider community of Bradford. As a Dixons Academy, our mission is simple: we celebrate diversity and relentlessly focus on the highest standards of student achievement.

In 2013 we moved into a brand new building with the very best facilities for our students, providing a high quality environment to deliver outstanding learning. In 2013 we also opened our doors to Primary children and will ‘grow’ our primary phases until we are truly all-through in 2019.

At our most recent Ofsted inspection (November 2014), although the academy was judged to require improvement overall, leadership and management were judged to be good, along with the students’ behaviour, safety and the primary provision. The inspection team noted that the quality of teaching, and students’ achievement, is improving and the development of students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is a strong feature of provision.
