Stimulating and lively discussion is at the centre of students' experience of History at The Dixie.

Trips to the battlefields of France and Belgium, to the Bosworth Battlefield, Beth Shalom and the Galleries of Justice, to Poland and Germany are all part of the students' experience of studying History at The Dixie. Debate, discussion and creativity are encouraged not only in lessons but also through the very popular History Society. An emphasis on academic rigour and the innate value of studying History producesstudents who can think critically, speak eloquently and write with flair.
