DID YOU PURCHASE YOUR CHILD'S PE HOODIE FROM RAWCLIFFES?
If you purchased your child’s PE hoodie from Rawcliffes, the mantra on the back of the hoodie was printed too high and too small;
therefore, we would like all of these to be replaced. As a gesture of goodwill, Rawcliffes have agreed to replace all hoodies supplied
by them free of charge. We have high standards at DTA and we would like all student hoodies to be the same style, so please could
you take your original hoodie to Rawcliffes as proof of purchase and place an order/collect a replacement hoodie for your child. If
your child requires a larger size, it may be a good opportunity to get the replacement hoodie bigger so that it lasts longer. Hoodies
purchased from Personalise and Natasha’s Schoolwear do not need to be replaced. Thank you for your co-operation.
Just before the Easter break, we took a group of Y10 students to Bradford City’s football stadium, Valley Parade, to attend a Careers
Fair. This gave the students the chance to see a full range of career and apprenticeship opportunities that may be available to them
once they have completed their studies. At the Fair, the students were able to participate in activities such as brick laying, creating
electric circuits and handling live animals. They also spoke to a variety of professionals and colleges about programmes and courses
that are available. The day was a real success and gave the students a genuine insight into the exciting opportunities that may lie
ahead in the coming years.
Y9 BBC RADIO LEEDS
On Thursday 10 March, five budding journalists headed to BBC Radio Leeds to experience life as a radio presenter. These students,
who had been participating in BBC News Report, had been invited to join the team at the radio station to both join presenters on air
(in the studio) and to go out with their reporter.
In the studio, three of our students presented the morning show with Richard Stead live on air. At first they were quite daunted by
this prospect, but they soon got into the role and all of them did a superb job of playing co-host during the morning show. They were
able to speak about what they had been doing for BBC Schools News Report at school and join an antiques expert during a phone in
with the public. The other two students went out with a reporter asking the public about their thoughts on their favourite ‘retro
pudding’ – a theme of the show.
Once the morning show finished, the students were taken on a tour of the studio and were able to see how TV programmes are
produced. They were also able to meet Kay Crewdson, a BBC weather presenter, who gave them some insight into her role as well
as a tour of the TV studio.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable trip!
MATHS IN MOTION UPDATE
In what is our first year participating in the Jaguar Maths in Motion challenge (a computer simulation of Formula 1 motor racing),
students from Dixons Trinity continue to exceed expectations in the competition phases. During World Maths Day (2 March), all of our
Maths in Motion co-curricular students entered for the Toshiba challenge: out of 11,000 entrants, 5 of our students placed in the top
100, with 2 in the top 20. In addition to this, the Dixons Trinity team qualified for the semi-finals of the overall Maths in Motion
Challenge and are only 1 step away from competing in the National Final; this is a huge achievement considering our short time as
participants. Well done to the Y10 co-curricular team – keep up the good work!

Many parents have requested help with ensuring their children are using the internet and electronic devices safely outside the
academy. Therefore, we will be holding a series of three workshops during cycle 3. These will cover a range of topics.
The first one will be on the 6 May 2016. It will begin at 8:45am. This will be an introductory session covering the following topics:
- What is e-safety?
- What risks/signs to look out for in managing e-safety
- Filtering & monitoring at home
- Opportunity to ask questions
- Computer games
We will send out a reply slip nearer to the date to confirm attendance for the workshop.
The second session will focus on social networking websites and apps. If you want to suggest any further topics that we can focus
on, please pass these to reception or email Mr Asghar on [email protected]
Science week proved to be an especially exciting week for Y7 when they managed to travel into space for the day. The Yorkshire
Planetarium was set up in school and all our Y7 students spent time in the large inflatable dome, taking a journey through the solar
system and learning more about space travel. Students gained a lot of valuable knowledge about our solar system and were keen to
demonstrate their passion for space through some thought provoking questions during the Q&A session with the astrophysicist who
delivered the presentation. Hopefully, we’ve inspired some of our future scientists to take up a career in astrophysics.
