Secondary admissions

Year 7 intake in September 2020

Following changes to the Admissions Policy for Dixons Allerton Academy, the Academy no longer admits children by fair-banding.  Consequently, children who are applying for this Academy are not required to sit the non-verbal reasoning assessment and it is no longer necessary to complete a Dixons supplementary form to apply to this Academy.

Applications to the Academy should be made via the local authority / council CAF (Common Application Form).  You will need to name the Academy as one of your school preferences on that form. 

If you are applying for a place at Dixons Allerton Academy under the 'Exceptional medical or social need' or 'Children of staff' oversubscription criteria, please follow the instructions in the guidance document which is available as a downloadable document at the bottom of this page.

Places will be filled in line with the oversubscription criteria outlined in our Admissions and Appeals Policy (see Downloads section below).  Please note that the Policy relates only to the admission year stated on the document and is subject to change in future years.

More information about the secondary school application process is available here from September: https://www.bradford.gov.uk/ed...

Further information about the Academy can be found on this website or by contacting us via:

e-mail:  info@dixonsaa.com    telephone:  01274 770230

 

Open Evening

The open event for 2020 admissions will take place on Tuesday 17th September 2019.  Arrival is 5pm to 6.15pm.  Presentations will take place at 5.15pm and 6.15pm.


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 telephone 01274 770230 or e-mail: admissions@dixonsaa.com  


Applying for entry into Post 16 (sixth form)

The Academy has published specific criteria in relation to minimum academic entrance requirements for progression from Year 11 to the Post 16 provision.  There will be a right of appeal to an independent appeals panel for students refused transfer.
