Dixons Trinity Chapeltown opened in September 2017 and will grow to its full capacity of 980 students (Reception to Year 11) by 2023. Opened in 2017, Dixons Trinity Chapeltown is an all-through school with a curriculum and approach designed specifically to serve the community of Chapeltown and Harehills in Leeds. In November 2021, we were judged Outstanding by Ofsted under the new inspection framework. Inspectors felt that this is “a school with excellence at the core of everything that takes place” and “the school is an exceptionally calm and orderly place to learn.” The chance to join Dixons Trinity Chapeltown provides an exciting and unique opportunity to work with a talented team in continuing to build an exceptional school from its foundation.

Our Mission:
“The academy ensured that all students succeeded at university, thrived in a top job and had a great life.”

In order to achieve our mission, we focus on three key drivers: Mastery, which is the drive to get better at things that matter; Autonomy, or the drive to direct our own lives; and Purpose, which is the drive to connect to a cause larger than ourselves.

Our practice is thoroughly rooted in this approach and in the following three core values:

1. Hard Work

We never give up. We remain positive so that we have the strength to persevere with even the hardest work. We do what it takes for as long as it takes.

2. Trust

We are honest. We do what we say we’ll do and do not make excuses. We are loyal and have the courage to do the right thing.

3. Fairness

We play by the rules. We are respectful, polite and courteous at all times. We don’t take advantage of others and helping a member of our team is helping ourselves.

At Trinity Chapeltown, we will create an impressive culture of success through the operation of strict routines and protocols, an unwavering focus on results, and by offering the very best teaching and support. Students will learn, behave and be well mannered. Teachers will teach with skill and rigour showing great courtesy. Staff and students will enjoy what they do together.

In our achievement-oriented culture, it will be cool to be smart, and all students will work hard to climb the mountain to university or a real alternative.
