Admissions

Year 7 intake in September 2021

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 Guidance document which is available from the Downloads section at the bottom of this page.

The Academy receives many more applications than there are places available.  Places will be filled in line with the oversubscription criteria stated in the Admissions and Appeals Policy (available from the Downloads section below).  Below is a chart showing the number of applications there were last year and how many places were allocated in each criteria:

Year 7 intake in September 2022

As of September 2019, the Academy no longer admits children by fair-banding, therefore, parents do not need to register early to receive information about the supplementary form (SIF).  Applications to the Academy are made via the local authorities Common Application/Preference forms which will be available via the local authorities websites in September 2021.

Please note that applications to the Academy are prioritised in line with the oversubscription criteria (outlined in the Admissions Policy available from the Downloads section below) which includes a distance rule.  For September 2020, the last child allocated a place under the distance criteria lived 0.467 miles from the Academy.


In-Year Admissions

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 rarely happens.

To apply, you will 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.  The form and more information about the process is available from www.bradford.gov.uk/education-... or you can request for a form to be sent to you by e-mailing: schooladmissions@bradford.gov.uk or by telephoning 01274 439200.

If a vacancy does occur, we will look at the local authority waiting list and prioritise children in accordance with the oversubscription criteria (see In-Year Guidance document in the Downloads section below).

Should you have any questions about the admissions process, please e-mail: admissions@dixonsta.com or telephone 01274 423134 or 01274 423127

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
