Dixons Academies Trust

Dixons Academies Charitable Trust Ltd (Dixons) is a school trust with academies in Bradford, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.

At Dixons, we are committed to making a difference where it matters most. We work to improve the future for thousands of children in the parts of the north of England where young lives are adversely affected by social and educational disadvantage. We believe that every child, regardless of their background, should be able to fulfil their academic potential and go on to thrive.

Founded by Dixons City Academy, our Trust has over 30 years’ experience in transforming education through our network of high-performing non-faith academies, and now operates in Leeds, Bradford, Liverpool and Manchester.

Our schools include primary, secondary, all-through and sixth form.  We focus exclusively on sponsored turnaround academies to address educational failure, and on new free schools to meet growing demand.  Our diversity is a real strength of our model, balancing common alignment with the autonomy to innovate.

We have achieved a great deal in a relatively short time: our start-ups are all graded Outstanding and our sponsored academies have all climbed at least two Ofsted grades with our backing. This gives us a solid platform from which we continue to build responsibly: our Trust will continue to expand, from 9,000 students in 2020 to at least 20,000 by 2025.
