Curriculum

As a Dixons academy, our curriculum is aligned to a common set of Trust wide principles which are underpinned by our mission to challenge educational and social disadvantage in the North.

At Dixons Allerton Academy, we pride ourselves on ensuring that all scholars are successful in their learning. We focus on supporting scholars to make exceptional progress in every subject that they are studying. Our curriculum focuses on high expectations of achievement for all; this is supported through the highly personalised teaching in the classroom.

The start of Key Stage 3 (KS3) marks an exciting phase in the lives of our scholars. It is the period when they build on their primary education and prepare for their Key Stage 4 (KS4) choices, some of which will be made in Year 8. Our curriculum is designed to support scholars to master the basics as well as offer more flexibility, so that teachers can tailor their teaching to scholars' needs and aspirations.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, focusing on the key skills required to access KS4 & further study successfully and beyond into the world of work. Subjects studied are English, maths, science, computing, history, geography, PE, music, drama, art, languages, technology and RE. Citizenship, enterprise, careers and PHSEE are taught throughout the curriculum and permeate everything we do within school. 

KS4 is the period when scholars build on their earlier learning and prepare for adult life, higher education and employment.

We will focus on an Ebacc curriculum where scholars study English, maths and science alongside a humanity (history or geography) and a language. 


Our curriculum principles are available to read in full in the 'Why Dixons? section of the Dixons Academies Trust website.

Our world is a strange place to live at the moment. Atif and Falak have drawn and written in their jar of courage to help them be brave and remember that once all the germs have gone, we can all go back to normal. #happiness https://t.co/kgkBEHba22

Fatima from Year 2 has been practicing various skills including Geography, Science and History- all based on Year 2’s Key Facts. She was keen to share it with Mrs Mulligan, and I can see why! #industry https://t.co/ts7pCCZoPg
