“Pupils develop outstanding study skills […] and at both GCSE and A level, results are significantly higher than data predicts for pupils of similar ability.”

The Dixie Grammar School Senior School is set in the heart of the picturesque Market Bosworth and our stunning sports ground boasting hockey all-weather pitches, tennis courts and expansive playing fields is just outside Bosworth.
Pupils are encouraged to take risks, challenge themselves 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 are small by design and this is fundamental to our outstanding pastoral care. All schools advertise a knowledge of each individual child but at the Dixie it really is the case that all are known by all. Friendships blossom within and across year groups and crucially, our impressive Sixth Form know and are known by our youngest – their influence and example makes them the most impressive role models. We promote a learning environment where our pupils are respectful and tolerant of the individuality and abilities of others.
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, both inside and outside the classroom and supported and encouraged to try everything on offer. At the end of the Sixth Form, students move to first-rate universities or highly competitive apprenticeships armed with the skills, confidence and ability they need to continue to flourish and love learning.
“Pupils grow into thoughtful young people with excellent levels of self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience.”
