German

Few people realise that more people in Europe speak German as their mother tongue than any other language. We at The Dixie Grammar School believe in the policy of Languages for All, and therefore German is taught to all students throughout Years 7, 8 and 9, providing an excellent foundation knowledge in the language.

During the GCSE years and in the Sixth Form, students opting for German have the opportunity to take part in the well established and extremely popular exchange programme with our partner school, the Jade Gymnasium, in Jaderberg in the North of Germany. This exchange programme has now been running for 21 years.
