“Pupils in the junior school make rapid progress from their starting points and are well prepared to take on the demands they will face in the senior school.”
ISI Inspection Report 2022
The Dixie Grammar Junior School and Nursery is the most wonderful place to be. We are a happy school, where our children are comfortable in their own skins, grounded and energetic. We have a uniquely beautiful setting overlooking the Leicestershire countryside, which means an abundance of safe space for play, sports fixtures, outdoor learning and our superb Forest School.
Our classrooms are ablaze with the impressive work of our happy pupils who are encouraged to take risks and gain the confidence and skills that will enable them to move to the next stage of their education. Above all else we value the individual, enabling pupils to be proud of themselves and their accomplishments. We promote a learning environment where our pupils are respectful and tolerant of the individuality and abilities of others. Childhood is precious – we want all children to have plenty of time for play, fun and laughter and to build memories of school that will last forever.
Our biggest asset is our talented, dedicated and inspirational staff members who provide all that is needed for outstanding teaching and pastoral care. Our staff know every single pupil as an individual and put their happiness and welfare first. From that, success flows. Every child is exposed to a wealth of opportunities and supported and encouraged to try everything on offer. At the end of year 5 we know that they are ready for a seamless move to the Senior School, armed with the skills, confidence and ability they need to continue to flourish and love learning.
“Pupils grow into thoughtful young people; they have the confidence to face new challenges and are not afraid to make mistakes.”
