The Tatler Schools Guide team has revealed the nominations for the much anticipated Tatler Schools Awards 2024, which unveil the finest prep and public schools in the country.

Shortlisting 300 schools, followed by school visits, questionnaires and public votes, the nominations are carefully handpicked and the elite list is crafted by Tatler’s expert panel.

Here at DLD College London, we are thrilled to announce that our Principal, Irfan Latif, has been shortlisted for the Tatler Schools Best Head of a Public School category.

We spoke to Irfan on receiving the award and he said:

“I am deeply honoured to have been nominated for the prestigious title of ‘Best Head of a Public School’ by Tatler. This recognition is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire school community, including our exceptional staff, talented students, and supportive parents. Throughout my tenure as the Principal of DLD, I have strived to create an environment that fosters academic excellence, character development, and a commitment to lifelong learning. Our school’s success is not just measured by academic achievements but also by the values we instil in our students – values of tolerance, respect and kindness.

I want to express my gratitude to Tatler for acknowledging the importance of education and leadership in the public school system. This nomination serves as a reminder of the tremendous responsibility we have in shaping the future of our students and our society. I look forward to the opportunity to continue serving the DLD community, nurturing young minds, and working tirelessly to ensure that our beloved school remains a place of growth, inspiration, and achievement.

Thank you once again for this humbling recognition. Together, we will continue to make a positive impact on the lives of our students and the world they will shape in the future.”

All of the winners will be announced on Monday 25 September at The Dorchester Hotel, London as it plays host to The Tatler Schools Awards 2024.  The awards will be celebrating the outstanding achievements of schools and staff in the independent sector in addition to the 20th anniversary of the Tatler School Guide. Everyone at DLD College London, staff and students wish Irfan the best of luck!
