DLD College is a leading independent boarding school that offers over 500 students a wide-ranging curriculum in superb learning environment, delivered by tutors who are selected both for their academic strength, enthusiasm and their ability to relate positively to young people. We are helping students achieve grades they often didn't believe possible and preparing them to access the university courses and destinations of their choice. DLD College is a dynamic place to study providing high quality GCSE, A Level & BTEC courses.

Our lessons are lively and encourage students to discuss ideas, ask questions and actively learn. We recognise that choosing the most appropriate programme of study is a very important part of the application process and we therefore invite all those interested in enrolling at DLD to interview to discuss your subjects.

We believe small class sizes encourage a more purposeful learning and allow for a greater measure of individual attention, helping students to be more focused on their studies and building their confidence. Students learn important study skills including note taking, essay writing, time management, revision and exam technique. On average, class sizes at DLD are around 8 students. Each student is allocated a Personal Tutor who monitors his or her progress as they move through the course. The welfare of students is paramount and the personal tutors are backed up by a team of Directors of Studies.
