The academy has had tremendous impact to date.  Each year we publish an Impact Report which are available to read below.  In 2014 – 15, scholars who entered the academy not secondary ready made 42 months progress in reading.  In 2015 – 16, the academy had one of the lowest Persistent Absence figures nationally.  In 2016 – 17, the academy was graded outstanding in all areas including Sixth Form which has only been open nine months.  We are extremely proud of the hard work of our scholars, staff and families in creating such an exceptional place to learn and work.  You can read the full Ofsted report below.

Cycle 3 Week 9. Our focus is on climbing mountains. We all have to take a small step forward. We will be thinking about what we need to do next to be better tomorrow than we are today. Our word of the week is tactful.

Today was an emotional day. The Y11’s finished their last GCSE exam. Each and every scholar has made us proud of the young adults they have become! We wish you all of the luck in your next chapter of your life @dixonsma_art @dixonsma_maths @dixonsma_music
