Year 7 intake in September 2017
The deadline for the submission of completed supplementary forms was 3.30pm on Friday 23 September 2016. Any supplementary forms submitted after this deadline will be added to a waiting list but will only be considered after those applications received before the deadline.
Mailing list for Year 7 – September 2018
We start to accept details onto a mailing list from when children commence Year 5 at primary school. To register your interest, please send the following information in writing via a letter or e-mail to:
c/o Dixons McMillan Academy
- Child's full name, date of birth, present school and home address
- Name of parent/carer
- Address of parent/carer, if different to the child's address
- Contact telephone number
On receipt of this information, you will receive a confirmation e-mail or letter advising you that the details have been added to the mailing list. Information about the admissions process will then follow at the end of July (i.e. the end of Year 5).
To apply for Dixons Trinity Academy you must also name the school on the Common Application Form issued by the local authorities at the start of Year 6 and submit this to them by their deadline date (this is usually on/around 31 October).
Details of our current admissions arrangements are given in the Admissions & Appeals Policy which can be found in the 'Policies' section of our website. Please note that the Policy relates only to the admission year stated on the document and is subject to change in future years.
In-year admissions (Years 7 to 11)
Dixons Trinity Academy is a very popular school and, consequently, a vacancy is only likely to occur if a child leaves the year group, which does not happen very often.
Should you wish to enquire about vacancies, please telephone or write to Admissions (via the contact details given above) with the information required (above). You may also wish to include the reasons for applying. A written confirmation will be sent to you to advise what the current situation is.
Because we are part of a coordinated admission scheme, you also need to complete an In-Year Application Form for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs.
Where vacancies do occur, we look at the waiting list for children who are in the same ability band as the child who is leaving. The random allocation process is run and children are prioritised in accordance with the oversubscription criteria (see Admissions and Appeals Policy in the ‘Policies’ section of the website). 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 In-Year Application Form).
