Dixons City Academy is larger than the average-sized secondary school. An above-average proportion of students are from minority ethnic backgrounds. Most students
are from Asian British and Pakistani backgrounds. The proportion of students who speak English
as an additional language is well above average; few are at early stages of learning English.
The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional
funding for students in the care of the local authority and those known to be eligible for free
school meals, is average.
The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs who are
supported at school action is well below average, while the proportion supported at school action
plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average.
The academy meets the government's current floor standards, which set out the minimum
expectations for students' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
A very small number of students in Year 11 attend courses at Bradford College and Work Quest. Since the last inspection the academy has formed the Dixons Academy Trust; a partnership of
five local schools.
The academy is also part of the Bradford Partnership of Schools.
