Secondary appeals

Updated 30/07/20

Staff in the Admissions and Appeals Office are currently working remotely in line with Government advice regarding Covid-19. If you have any questions please contact us by e-mail to appeals@dixonsacademies.com or alternatively you can telephone 01274 089780 and choose option 1 (between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays).


Year 7 – September 2020

Year 7 places were offered, via the local authorities, on 2nd March 2020. Children who could not be offered a place, due to there being more applications than there are places, will automatically remain on a waiting list until 31st December 2020. On the Admissions page you will find details of how many applications there were, and a breakdown of places by oversubscription criteria. If you need clarification about why your child was not offered a place, please speak to the Admissions & Appeals Office via the contact details given above.

All appeals submitted by the end of the academic year (Friday 17th July) have now taken place.  Any appeal forms that are submitted after that date will be heard once the new academic year starts at the end of August.

In-Year  

The Academy is currently full in each year group.  Parents can apply for their child to join the waiting list; details of how to do this can be found by clicking on the ‘Admissions’ tab at the top of the website.

Before you can make an appeal you must first have applied to the Academy for a place and have completed a recent In-Year Application Form for the local authority.  Once you have received a letter advising you that a place cannot be offered, you can then proceed to make an appeal for the Academy if you wish to.  

The Academy can only proceed to the appeals stage if the year group is full.  Places are not ‘reserved’ for those whose appeals are upheld, so any upheld appeal will result in the year group being over the admission number.

Before making an appeal, please read the documents at the bottom of this page which include information about the appeals process and, frequently asked questions and statistics (Appeals FAQ Secondary In-Year).  

If you wish to receive an appeals pack, please telephone the number given below and ask to speak to the Appeals Coordinator.  Alternatively, you can send an e-mail to the address below stating:

  • your child’s name and date of birth
  • the name of the academy that you wish to make an appeal for

Lots of insects fly around the garden and they help to pollinate plants. Go out and see how many you can spot, can you spot a Hoverfly? Also can you find out what plants they like? 🐝🐞🐜🐛 @bradfordmdc @CLOtC @The_RHS https://t.co/PYX3RjY9IF
