How do I apply?

Year 7 intake in September 2019

Following changes to the Admissions Policy for Dixons Trinity Academy, children who are applying for Dixons Trinity Academy will no longer be required to sit the non-verbal reasoning assessment to be eligible for a place at Dixons Trinity Academy.  Consequently, parents no longer need to complete a supplementary form to apply to Dixons Trinity Academy.

Applications to the academy are 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 guidance document.

More information about the secondary school application process is available here from September:

Places will be filled in line with the oversubscription criteria outlined in our Admissions and Appeals Policy (see Downloads section below).

More information about the academy can be found on our website or by contacting us via:
telephone: 01274 424350

Open Event

The open event for 2019 admissions will take place on Tuesday 4 September 2018.  Principal’s presentations will take place at 5.30pm and 7.00pm.  Parents should arrive promptly at either time.

If any parents are unable to attend on this date, Miss Thompson will also be available to speak to at Dixons McMillan’s open evening on Thursday 6 September 2018.  Principal’s presentations will take place at 5.30pm and 7.00pm.  Parents should arrive promptly at either time.

In-Year Applications

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.

To apply, you will need to complete an In-Year Application Form for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs.  The In-Year form and more information about the process is available from or you can request for a form to be sent to you by e-mailing: or by telephoning 01274 439200.

Where vacancies do occur, we look at the local authority waiting list and children are prioritised in accordance with the over-subscription criteria (see Admissions and Appeals Policy in the Downloads section below).

Should you have any questions about the admissions process, please telephone 01274 424350 or e-mail:

But our charity partner @DixonsAcademies has been listed as the second best trust in the country for #progress8. That means their students are doing better when compared with students who received similar results at age 11.
