Alexander Conlon

Assistant Vice Principal

Alexander has worked at Dixons McMillan Academy since 2016 in a number of roles. He started as an associate member of staff working to support students in Mountain Support before completing his PGCE with Dixons Academies in 2017. Since then, Alexander has been a Teacher of History, Head of Year, Associate Senior Leader and now as Assistant Vice Principal for Teaching and Learning. He has also served a four-year term as staff representative on the Local Academy Board and a two-year term as DMA's representative to the Trust's Executive Shadow Board. He also leads the History department and regularly works with colleagues across the Trust in this capacity.

Alexander is an Ancient History & Archaeology graduate of the University of Manchester after his own secondary school experience as a student at Dixons City Academy. He has also worked in archaeological research as part of the Ardnamurchan Transitions Project in the Scottish Highlands, helping to teach archaeological fieldwork skills to undergraduates from various Russell Group universities. Alexander hopes that his experience of also being a Dixons student will help those who he teaches climb their mountains to future success.
