About

Dixons Trinity Academy opened with 112 Year 7 students on 4 September 2012 and has now risen to its full capacity of 560 students (Y7-11).  

In January 2014, we became the first secondary free school to be judged Outstanding by Ofsted. 

At Trinity, we have tried to take the best ideas from academies, schools, the independent sector and abroad. No individual element of our practice is revolutionary. Others have said that it is the way in which ideas have been combined and embedded with rigour and simplicity that has allowed us to make such a strong start. We don’t believe in off-the-shelf strategies or practices; there is no silver bullet. It is really about being values driven, having clear vision, focusing relentlessly on results, operating strict routines, doing the simple things well every day, and building strong relationships at all levels. 

We have created an impressive culture of success through the operation of strict routines and protocols, an unwavering focus on results, and by offering the very best teaching and support. Students learn, behave and are well mannered. Teachers teach with skill and rigour showing great courtesy. Staff and students enjoy what they do together.

In our achievement-oriented culture, it is cool to be smart, and all students work hard to climb the mountain to university or a real alternative.

This video looks at how our academies use the mission-mapping framework to craft culture. We take the elements of the mission map and make it all our choice because a maximally effective culture is the origin of, and amplifier for, all else. #DixonsOpenSource @researchED1 https://t.co/jBqTnhHalI
