A secondary school in Bradford for 11-18 year olds. The school, which opened in 2014, is part of the Dixons Academy Trust which already runs two free schools and a number of other successful academies in the city. It will serve 720 pupils when full and aims to equip each student with the knowledge and skills required to enter university. The school’s ‘no-excuses’ ethos draws heavily on the practice found in US Charter Schools and in its sister school, Dixons Trinity Academy, which was rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. NSN has produced a short film about life at Dixons McMillan Academy which you can find here.
