- > About
Dixons McMillan opened with 112 Year 7 students in September 2014 and today has just over 600 students on roll.
We are determined to provide our students and our families with the very best education possible so that they leave the academy as highly employable individuals, fully ready to lead happy and successful lives. This involves ensuring that our students are ready with highly developed literacy and numeracy skills, coupled with the ability to make a special contribution to the world in which we live and share. Our intensely values driven culture ensures that everyone in the Dixons McMillan family demonstrates resilience, integrity and courtesy each and every day.
The academy has been designed to ensure that every system and every policy is healthy and efficient which has resulted in high levels of consistency. Students, staff and families at Dixons McMillan are fully aligned to our ‘warm-strict’ culture. We expect 100% from our students, we expect support from our families, but we provide the same care and expectations as we would hope for our own children.
At Dixons McMillan, teachers teach and students study. Our relentless focus on ensuring our provision is highly tailored for our students ensures that no students is left behind in a strong culture of genuine care. What we do is simple, but we do it extremely well.
