“We look forward to welcoming him and working with him as we continue to focus on transforming the lives of the children and young people we are privileged to serve.”
Sir Nick Weller said: “It has been a great privilege leading Dixons for the last 16 years.
"In this time, we have grown from one single academy to 15 schools across four cities. I am incredibly proud of everything that we have achieved together in our unwavering commitment to challenging educational and social disadvantage in the north.
