Year 7 intake in September 2022
As of September 2019, the Academy no longer admits children by fair-banding. Consequently, children who are applying for this Academy are not required to sit the non-verbal reasoning assessment and it is no longer necessary to complete a Dixons supplementary form (SIF) to apply to this Academy.
Applications to the Academy should be made via the local authority/council CAF (Common Application Form). You will need to name the Academy as one of your school preferences on that form.
If you are applying for a place at Dixons Trinity Academy under the 'Exceptional medical or social need' or 'Children of staff' oversubscription criteria, please follow the instructions in the Admissions Guidance document which is available from the Downloads section at the bottom of this page.

In-Year admissions (years 7 to 11)
Dixons Trinity Academy is a heavily oversubscribed school and a vacancy is only likely to occur if we drop below the admission number, which very rarely happens.
If a vacancy does occur, we will look at the waiting list and children will be prioritised in accordance with the oversubscription criteria (see In-Year Guidance document in the Downloads section below). 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 ICAF).
Should you wish to add your child to the waiting list, please telephone or write to Admissions with the following information. You may also wish to include the reasons for applying. A written confirmation will be sent to you to confirm that we have added the details to our waiting list.
- 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
Telephone: 01274 089780 - option 7 for Admissions & Appeals
You will also need to complete an In-Year Common Application Form (ICAF) for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs.
