As a Dixons academy, our curriculum is aligned to a common set of Trust-wide principles which are underpinned by our mission to challenge educational and social disadvantage in the North. Our curriculum principles are available to read in full in the '为什么Dixons的？ section of the Dixons的院校信托 website.
Unlike many independent schools, we have a longer teaching week. In addition to our 27 55-minute lessons, we run five half-hour Collective Learning sessions; five half-hour reading sessions, mid-morning; and up to four hours of Prep and electives in the sports and arts over the course of the week.
A significant number of scholars are also expected to attend morning intervention from 7.30am. With an extended academy day, scholars have more time in the classroom to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding, as well as more opportunities to broaden their education.
At McMillan, we believe there are no shortcuts to success, and our scholars would not make the progress they do without more time in school.
We build a partnership between parents, scholars and teachers that puts 学习第一。我们帮助我们的学者 值学习 by activating them as owners of their own learning.
Our teachers are passionate about teaching and learning; they are able to present challenging learning tasks. Their expertise allows them to 'read' their classrooms and to be more responsive to learners. They are extremely flexible and take every opportunity to maximise learning. They are great seekers and users of feedback.

These are compulsory features of all our lessons that shape how students learn and how teachers teach.
In our classrooms and in our schemes of work and prevention plans, we value knowledge, skills and understanding.
Teachers are free to teach as they want as long as scholars learn and make progress. However, we do expect some of our 核心 routines and strategies to be embraced by every teacher in every lesson – for example, a No Hands Up rule to ensure all questions are targeted and all students are engaged.

Scholars will also be able to opt into some co-curricular electives, in an area that they are genuinely interested in. These will run on Thursday period 5.
Each day there is co-curricular enrichment for scholars to sign up to. Once signed up, scholars are committed to that activity and must attend.
