What's on weekly

Academy Week 

Dixons McMillan scholars benefit from a longer working week.  We know that more time with scholars enables them to experience a broad curriculum and experience a full range of subjects.  Scholars must also opt into some co-curricular electives, an area that they are genuinely interested in.  These will run on Thursday period 5.  In additional scholars will also take part in at least one after school co - curricular enrichment session.
