About George Dixon Academy

Named for a 19th century Liberal MP, George Dixon Academy is a secondary school located in Birmingham, West Midlands. Founded in 1906, the school provides places to around 900 pupils aged 11-18 in a co-educational setting, with around 100 of these on roll in the school sixth form, making it average-sized for a secondary school of its type. George Dixon has achieved Academy status due to the exceptional rise in academic performance as recognised by the Department of Education; and was given the judgement of Good in all categories by Ofsted in March 2017.

Values and Vision

George Dixon Academy works hard to foster a sense of tolerance and respect for other cultures and belief systems, owing to its extremely diverse student body. The school’s curriculum offers a broad range of subjects both academic and vocational at Key Stage 4. The school sixth form is based in a modern purpose-built block, and equipped with its own common room and study areas, and offers a similarly broad number of subjects. Outside of the classroom, George Dixon Academy offers a number of extra-curricular activities such as after-school clubs and the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme.


"Pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, in Years 7 to 11 make good progress from their starting points across most subjects. Progress towards good results at GCSE has been strong in every year since the last inspection."
