Family dining

Family dining is core feature at Dixons McMillan and something that both scholars and staff enjoy. We eat as a family; scholars have the opportunity to create new friendships and strengthen relationships.  We expect all scholars to eat the healthy meal provided by the academy kitchen during family dining. We have invested in a fully trained chef and a new kitchen with modern facilities to ensure that our food is prepared to highest standards. Family dining is part of our culture and remains a distinctive feature at DMA. 

We operate a healthy school; this means that scholars may bring snack for break time but they must be healthy. Crisps and chocolate bars are not permitted. We aim to educate our young people about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and healthy eating.

Despite our situation it is a pleasure to see routines are being embedded at home. Khuzaimah in @dixonsma_2024 is one of our scholars who is sending work through regularly to keep on top of his studies. Well done 👍 #dmascholars #workhard
