Posted on 08.04.2019
Dixons Allerton Academy has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2018 based on data from the Department for Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network. Dixons Allerton Academy was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving an award for being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress.
In 2018, Dixons Allerton celebrated their best ever GCSE results, building on the success of the previous year. At Post 16, the school topped the Bradford performance table and placed in the top 1% of schools nationally for student progress (in the top 0.4% for non-selective schools.)
The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England and the highest performing schools for a range of key measures are awarded SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards. Dixons Allerton Academy will be presented with their award during the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.
"We are delighted to receive this recognition for the effort and commitment of our scholars and the staff who support them so tirelessly to achieve the best they can be in everything they do. This award further demonstrates the progress we have made at Dixons Allerton Academy and I am extremely proud of all we have achieved." Gary Dreher, Principal, Dixons Allerton Academy
“I am delighted that Dixons Allerton Academy has won an Educational Outcomes Awards. This recognises one important aspect of the school’s work but at SSAT we believe an outstanding school has deep social justice at the heart of its plan; it subjects that plan to constant challenge and innovation; and it liberates teachers to perform brilliantly in the classroom. SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to students, parents, staff and governors.” Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT
