Dixons Allerton Academy is a great place to study where students take the next steps on their learning journey towards university, apprenticeship or employment. We have high expectations and promote an ethos of professionalism through our code of conduct and academic rigour.

Young people need skills for a rapidly changing work-place that requires people who are able to adapt, be resourceful, innovate, have quality inter-personal skills and work effectively in teams. We are big enough to create a lively and stimulating atmosphere and to offer a broad range of courses, but small enough for students to get a supportive personalised approach that will prepare them both intellectually and emotionally for a successful life. 

We offer a wide range of courses at Level 3 (Advanced study), that include a variety of academic A levels and vocational courses (BTEC and OCR). The wider programme of study includes: work related learning, independent study skills, university visits and career development.

Central to our commitment is high quality teaching leading to a high quality learning experience. We embrace innovation and future technologies and implement these into our day to day life.Each scholar engages with a charity called the Learning Foundation.Through this partnership they buy or lease a Chromebook laptop for the duration of their studies. Post-16 study leads the way in the use of platforms such as Google Drive, OWL and Google Classroom. This allows teachers and students to work in a flexible and collaborative way.

Many of our own students choose to continue their studies at Allerton and for good reasons. If you are considering applying to us from another school, you will find the atmosphere friendly and open. We admit a number of external applicants each year, and you will soon feel very much a part of the team. We take great pride in the good relationships that exist between students and staff and within the student body. As you near the end of Year 11, you are faced with a range of choices including employment, training, or continuing your studies elsewhere. You need to explore all these paths and get advice from many sources.

What do you do when you can’t go outside and you have played all the games you own? You make a new one out of a cereal box, of course! Well done for using your #industry skills, Alissiah! https://t.co/D12yCnZey0

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
