Overview

Students at The Dixie are passionate about languages, and recognise that they are the key to 21st century citizenship, providing the crucial link in an increasingly global economy and multi-cultural society.

All students are introduced to French, German and Mandarin Chinese and all three languages are offered in the Sixth Form.

Students enjoy a vibrant programme of visits and exchanges, which bring languages to life  and foster strong international relations and lifelong friendships.

Our Confucius Classroom award recognises our commitment to the teaching of Mandarin, not just in The Dixie, but in the wider community. As the only school in Leicestershire with this award, we are a hub of excellence and teach lessons in many local Junior and Prep schools.
