Regrettably, because of the high number of applications it has not been possible to offer every child, who wants one, a place. We automatically keep every child's name on the waiting list until the end of December 2021. You are advised to return the local authority’s Waiting List form to inform them if you want to stay on the waiting list for this or any other school. A copy of the form is available from the Downloads section below.
If you have not yet completed a local authority Common Application Form (CAF) you should complete the Late Preference form available below. If you completed a CAF but did not make 5 preferences then you can complete the Additional Preference form, also available below.
If you have any specific questions about the waiting list or admissions process, please contact us via the details given below.

Dixons McMillan Academy is a very popular school and, consequently, a vacancy is only likely to occur if we drop below the admission number which very rarely happens.
If a vacancy does occur, we will look at the waiting list for children who are in the same ability band as the child who is leaving. The random allocation process will be run and children will be prioritised in accordance with the oversubscription criteria (see In-Year Guidance document in the Downloads section below). We send this list to the local authority and they then allocate the place in the order of the waiting list and in line with parental preference (as specified on the ICAF).
Should you wish to add your child to the waiting list, please telephone or write to Admissions (via the contact details given above) with the information required (see list above). You may also wish to include the reasons for applying. A written confirmation will be sent to you to confirm that we have added the details to our waiting list.
You will also need to complete an In-Year Common Application Form (ICAF) for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs. The ICAF and more information about the process is available from www.bradford.gov.uk/education-... or you can request for a form to be sent to you by e-mailing: email@example.com or by telephoning 01274 439200.
The sixth form at Dixons McMillan Academy closed in Summer 2020. Applicants who wish to study in a Dixons school for sixth form can apply to the new Dixons Sixth Form Academy via their website: www.dixons6a.com
