The Mayor of Greater Manchester visited Dixons Brooklands Academy

Posted 12th June 2024

Our students at Dixons Brooklands Academy were recently reunited with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham. Mr Burnham came for a tour of the building and to meet with the students who had attended the Convention of the North in March.  

At the Convention of the North, there were over 400 MPs, Mayors and policy makers in attendance. Our students shared the fantastic speeches they had created about areas they were passionate about, including the cost of living crisis, safe spaces to socialise and provision for children with special educational needs.

Everyone who came loved the speeches including Andy Burham, and true to his word, he visited the academy on Thursday 23rd May, spending time with the students, who spoke to Andy about everything from the power of art, to voting ages. He also engaged with our staff and had a tour of the school and met with staff and leaders across Dixons Academies Trust.
