Confucius Classroom

Welcome to the Dixie Confucius classroom webpage

Dixie grammar school has become the only school in Leicestershire to be awarded the prestigious Confucius Classroom status in Oct 2014. This award is recognition of the quality and extent of Mandarin Chinese teaching at the school. We are very proud of our achievement.

Dixie CC is a member of the IOE Confucius Institute. The IOE CI is a bilateral project with Peking University and Peking University High School and supported by Hanban (Chinese National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language). IOE CI has a small team of specialists in London and has built up a network of 42 Confucius Classroom across England.

With the Confucius Classroom status, Dixie Grammar School will receive extra funding from Hanban to improve our Mandarin provision and teachers to assist in delivering current and new courses in school and to local primary schools. Educational materials are also provided.
