There were scenes of joy at the Dixie Grammar School this morning as students picked up their exam results with most having already learned that they had been accepted on their first or second choice university course. Teachers and senior staff were in school to share these special moments as well as to offer support and guidance to those who needed it. Dixie has always prided itself on the attention it is able to give to students as individuals and this approach proved highly effective again in what has been described as a particularly challenging year by the national press.
All staff at the Dixie Grammar School are hugely proud of their students and their successes this year and there are many stories of remarkable personal achievement. As an example, Amaylia Dewis joined the Dixie Grammar School in Year 6 and is a student who has taken advantage of every opportunity offered to her, excelling in her contributions to the musical life of the school and as Diversity Prefect. Her development has been remarkable to witness and her outstanding results are richly deserved. Having secured a clean sweep of top grades (A*s in Religious Studies and English Literature and a Level 1 Distinction in Cambridge Pre-U Mandarin – the highest grade available and above an A*) Amaylia now goes on to study Philosophy and Theology at Edinburgh University.
