- > About
Dixons City Academy opened in September 1990 as one of 15 city technology colleges. Our original mission was to become a centre of excellence for the whole city of Bradford and we have worked hard to secure a national reputation for learning enhanced by technology. Student attainment has always been high and we are proud of our long history of excellent GCSE and A Level results and also the value that is added to our children from starting point.
For over 30 years, the academy has continued to take its role in the community very seriously and is proud to be the founding member of the Dixons Academies Trust, which currently has 12 schools in Bradford and Leeds.
We have a healthy respect for our proud history and have learnt so much from our many years of independence. Whilst we now work with a multi-academy Trust, the education of our children comes first and we will always do what is right for them.
This school would not be what it is today without the support and hard work of generations of students, staff and parents. In times of great national change, we remain healthily optimistic and wholly committed to the future of our children. They have a vital role to play in the future regeneration of our city and our country as a whole.
