In-year admissions (Years 7 to 11)

Dixons City 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.

Should you wish to add your child to the waiting list, please telephone or write to Admissions (via the contact details given above) with the information required (see list above). 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.

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. The ICAF 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 waiting list for children who are in the same ability band as the child who is leaving. The random allocation process will be run and children will be prioritised in accordance with the oversubscription criteria (see Admissions and Appeals Policy 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).


Sixth form

The sixth form (Post 16) at Dixons City Academy will close in Summer 2020. Applicants who wish to study in a Dixons school for sixth form can apply to the new Dixons Sixth Form Academy via their website: www.dixons6a.com
