Dixons McMillan opened with 112 Year 7 scholars in September 2014 and today has 720 scholars on roll, including our current Sixth Form.  

We are determined to provide our scholars 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 scholars are university 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 excellence, positivity and respect 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. Scholars, staff and families at Dixons McMillan are fully aligned to our ‘high expectations, no excuses’ culture, which is often verbalised as ‘100%’.   

At Dixons McMillan, teachers teach and scholars study.  Our relentless focus on ensuring our provision is highly tailored for our scholars ensures that no scholar is left behind in a strong culture of genuine care.  What we do is simple, but we do it extremely well.   

Please do come find out more on one of our visitor, family or recruitment events. We look forward to showing you how we are different but highly successful.
