Year 10


 At George Dixon Academy, we pride ourselves in a real sense of community and in Year 10 we continue with our Academy ethos to respect and show understanding for each other and aim to work hard and be kind.  We endeavour to ensure that students work together and help each other to achieve their full potential academically, morally and socially.  All students in year 10 are encouraged to apply for leadership opportunities and join in our enriched extracurricular activities.

Staff are here to support pupils as they make their way through the school. We offer a range of support from informal discussions with pupils to more structured interventions such as the many mentoring programmes on offer. We are eager to help our students and rely on open communications with our students and families to ensure we can quickly resolve any issues that may arise. Please contact your child’s tutor in the first instance if you have something you wish to discuss or share with us.



Hi everyone, I'm Mr Harrison and I'd like to take some time to introduce myself and to let you know what my role is here at George Dixon and how I can support pupils and families with regards to attendance.

I graduated as a Primary School teacher is 2014 and have over 10 years' experience working in education. I moved over to pastoral support in 2020 and thoroughly enjoy the work involved.

I thrive on building relationships with families and working relentlessly to support them the best way possible when it comes to attendance and welfare.

My role at George Dixon is Attendance and Welfare Officer and I will be responsible for attendance matters within the school.

I am here to help and support with breaking down any barriers that are preventing your child/ren attending school.

I'm fully aware of obstacles and constraints that may impact your child's ability to attend school. It's essential that you communicate these with school so we can assist in every way possible to ensure regular attendance remains possible.

If you have any concerns, questions or would like to discuss any attendance matters, please call the school and arrange a meeting.
