Dixons Newall Green Academy


Dixons Newall Green Academy will open in September 2023. The admission arrangements are:

  • There are 140 places in Year 7
  • Offers will be made on 31/03/2023. If we have not entered into a funding agreement with the Secretary of State opening the school by that date, they will be conditional offers and will be confirmed once we have a signed funding agreement. Where the Academy receives more applications than places available, the oversubscription criteria will apply.
  • Applications must be made on the Standard or Common Application (SAF / CAF) provided by the local authorities by the stated deadline. For more information visit Manchester local authority’s website.

Year 7 intake in September 2024

Applications to the Academy should be made via the local authority/council common application form (CAF), which is available on the Manchester City Council’s website. You will need to name the Academy as one of your school preferences on that form.

Further information about the admissions process and the oversubscription criteria which are used to rank applications, can be found in the Admissions and Appeals Policy (available from the Downloads section below).

More information about the secondary school application process will be available on this page from September.
