About

Dixons Cottingley Academy joined the group of Dixons academies on the 1st July 2018. Formerly, The Samuel Lister Academy, it is now the 10th school to be managed by the Dixons Academies Trust.

Our mission is to provide an exceptional education for all of our students so that they leave the academy with excellent results and all the tools needed to live happy, successful and purposeful lives. We are passionate about working closely with our parents, staff and wider community to drive this mission and provide the very best outcomes for all of our students.

Being part of the Dixons Academies Trust allows us to work closely with high-performing academies in the city, whilst retaining an independent and unique culture. We define the Dixons Difference as our relentless focus on student achievement, led by highly committed and caring staff. By creating a can-do, independent culture with an emphasis on self-discipline, we prepare our learners for future success in an ever-changing world. We value diversity and cultivate happy schools, based on strong relationships, mutual respect, integrity and honesty.

So, this morning we had tears. Their afternoon was calm & purposeful & their day ended with those last few selfies with friends until...who knows when. The resilience & determination of young people is awe inspiring. We'll be back. Stronger, more united & determined than ever.

We had science experiments galore in the LRC for #BritishScienceWeek. Science teacher Mrs Ahmad helped us make: hovercrafts from CDs, pyramids from spaghetti and slime with eyes, which was great fun. Lots of activity prize winners to be given out next week. https://t.co/ya02usL2Ax
