We automatically keep every child's name on the waiting list until the end of December 2021. You are advised to return the local authority’s Waiting List form to inform them if you want to stay on the waiting list for this or any other school. A copy of the form is available from the Downloads section below.

If you have not yet completed a local authority Common Application Form (CAF) you should complete the Late Preference form available below. If you completed a CAF but did not make 5 preferences then you can complete the Additional Preference form, also available below.

If you have any specific questions about the waiting list or admissions process, please contact us via the details given below.


Year 7 intake in September 2022

As of September 2020, the Academy no longer admits children by fair-banding, therefore, parents do not need to register early to receive information about the supplementary form (SIF). Applications to the Academy are made via the local authorities Common Application/Preference forms which will be available via the local authorities websites in September 2021.

Please note that applications to the Academy are prioritised in line with the oversubscription criteria (outlined in the Admissions Policy below) which includes a distance rule. For September 2021, the last child allocated a place under the distance criteria lived 0.879 miles from the Academy.


In-year admissions (Years 7 to 11)

Dixons Allerton Academy is a very popular school and, consequently, a vacancy is only likely to occur if a child leaves the year group which rarely happens.

To apply, you will need to complete an In-Year Common Application Form (ICAF) for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs. The form and more information about the process is available from www.bradford.gov.uk/education-... or you can request for a form to be sent to you by e-mailing: schooladmissions@bradford.gov.uk or by telephoning 01274 439200.

If a vacancy does occur, we will look at the local authority waiting list and prioritise children in accordance with the oversubscription criteria (see In-Year Guidance document in the Downloads section below).

Should you have any questions about the admissions process, please e-mail: admissions@dixonsaa.com or telephone: 01274 770230


Applying for entry into Post 16 (sixth form)

The Academy publishes specific criteria in relation to minimum academic entrance requirements for progression from Year 11 to the Post 16 provision. Please see the Post 16 section of the website for further information: https://www.dixonsaa.com/about...
