The core purpose of the school is teaching and learning, to support each child in reaching their academic potential.
The Dixie is proud of its strong academic record, based on stimulating intellectual curiosity, providing excellent and inspiring teaching, and making learning exciting. Our guiding principle is to help every child achieve the most they are capable of, to prepare them for the competitive world they will enter, and to give them a lasting sense of the pleasure and value of learning that will enrich their future lives.
Classes are small and our teachers are experienced, expert and approachable, and give a great deal of time to pupils both inside and outside the classroom. Our tutoring system means each pupil has personalised academic support. Our learning support staff can help those with additional needs, and our enrichment programme stimulates and stretches our more able students.
