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


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 In-Year 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 Admissions and Appeals Policy in the Downloads section below).

Should you have any questions about the admissions process, please either:

e-mail:  admissions@dixonsaa.com

or telephone:  01274 770230
