Admission policy

Admissions into Reception for September 2019

An Open Evening will be held on Wednesday 21st November 2018 from 5.00pm until 6.00pm. 

There will be an opportunity to tour the school and meet staff, as well as finding out about the curriculum and what the Academy has to offer your child.  The evening will begin with a short presentation from the Principal at 5.00pm. 

Parents apply by naming the Academy on the local authorities’ Common Application Form.  You will receive information concerning this from your child's nursery, pre-school setting, or your local authority, in November.  If you do not receive this information, please contact your local authority’s admissions department.

Parents can also choose to apply for one of 6 music specialist places at the Academy.  If who wish to apply for one of these places, please complete the supplementary form (listed below) and return it before 3.30pm on Friday 23rd  November 2018.

The Supplementary Form is also available for collection from the Academy Reception or at the Open Evening.

Details of our current admissions arrangements are given in the Admissions & Appeals Policy which can be found below.  Please note that the Policy relates only to the admission year stated on the document and is subject to change in future years. 

Our admissions process is run in conjunction with the Admissions Team at Bradford Council. You can find out more information by visiting the website below:


In-Year admissions

Dixons Music Primary is a very popular school and, consequently, a vacancy is only likely to occur if a child leaves the year group, which does not happen very often.

Should you wish to add your child to the waiting list, please telephone or write to Admissions via e-mail or letter (contact details are given below) with the following information; you may also wish to include the reason for application.  A written confirmation will be sent to you to advise what the current situation is.

Information required:

  • Child’s full name, date of birth, present school and home address
  • Name of parent/carer
  • Address of parent/carer, if different to the child's address
  • Contact telephone number

Address:      Admissions

                    Trinity Road

Because we are part of a coordinated admission scheme, you also need to complete an In-Year Application Form for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs.

The In-Year form is available by downloading it from their website (see address below) or by contacting the Admissions Team at the local authority:


Telephone:        01274 439200

Where vacancies do occur, places are decided by random allocation (in line with the School Admissions Code) and by applying our oversubscription criteria (see Admissions & Appeals Policy).
