Mission, values & drivers

Like all Dixons Academies, our mission is to establish and sustain a high-performing, non-faith school which values diversity and maximises scholar achievement. 

We are a hard working and a truly value driven academy with a culture of high expectations and no excuses. Everything we do is underpinned by our core values of excellence, positivity and respect, which has created an ethos of mutual respect in our place of learning and work. 

Values

All of our community subscribes to our values whole-heartedly. We know that having a common set of values unites and brings people together to work towards a common goal. 

Our values are important because they demonstrate our commitment to excellence, positivity and respect in our daily actions and interactions. We try to use these words as much as possible in conversations at McMillan. 

Excellence: striving for 100% in everything we do, demonstrated through hard work, grit and determination.

Positivity: approaching each day with a can-do attitude, tackling every challenge as an opportunity and fully contributing to a joyful school culture for all. 

Respect: ensuring all members of the community feel valued through treating everyone around us with kindness, fairness and honesty. 

At McMillan Academy we try to keep things simple and focused on scholar learning. We have learnt from some of the best practices to develop strategies that remove barriers to learning and ensure all our scholars are fully engaged at all times. 

Drivers

Every day we are developing our three drivers which are needed to be successful in learning and in life in general. 

Growth Mindset: maximising our abilities and talents through dedication, seeking advice and grasping any moment of disappointment to ensure it becomes an opportunity to learn and develop. 

Employability: developing attributes and habits which are essential to gain and sustain a rewarding career. 

Relationships: building strong and professional relationships involves truly appreciating those around us and fully taking part for the benefit of all.
