Mandarin

We at The Dixie are delighted that Mandarin Chinese is an established subject in its own right and that the school has strong links with China.  Our outstanding provision has been recognised this year in our 'Confucius Classroom' Award - and we are the only school with this coveted award in Leicestershire.

Over ten years ago, the Dixie Grammar School students began a relationship with our partner school, the Chongqing Experimental High School in Southwest China on the River Yangtze. Regular student visits have cemented bonds and Mandarin Chinese now forms an integral part of the school curriculum.

All students enjoy Mandarin Chinese from Year 6 to Year 8 and Mandarin is offered as an option at both GCSE and as an AS Level taught over two years.
