Teaching at DLD focuses on examination success. This is achieved through the acquisition of knowledge, examination technique and thinking skills. The teachers are experts in their respective fields; they teach their students the information they need in the form that they need it. DLD students are attracted to the school by its unique mix of high quality teaching and its flexible approach. The school helps each student to build his or her confidence within a happy, supportive and friendly environment. We expect high personal and academic standards from our students and many students surprise both themselves and their parents by their achievements.


We offer a wide range of A Level courses, helping our students achieve their potential and making certain that they achieve the best possible academic qualifications.


The Extended Project Qualification is offered to all Year 12 students. Further details can be found on this EPQ page.


Our GCSE programme offers a choice between the traditional and the modern. Students study a core foundation set of GCSEs and are then able to select between further traditional GCSEs or more innovative BTEC Award options. We also offer a one year GCSE course intended for those who already have a foundation in the subjects and need to attain their GCSE exams before moving on to A Level study.


You may have heard a lot about BTEC qualifications but aren’t sure what they are. BTECs are work related qualifications that are an alternative to A Levels or a complement to GCSEs. We offer BTEC Diplomas in a choice of subjects which are equivalent to three A Levels. Students can also study a BTEC Certificate, equivalent to one A Level, as an option in Year 13. We also offer BTEC options equivalent to a GCSE in the Upper School.


International Foundation Programmes were created as an alternative to A Levels to meet the needs of those international students who desire more specific pre-university experience.


The Academic Preparation Course (APC) prepares a student for a main course of study in the UK. The programme is designed to prepare learners during the academic year prior to them joining GCSE, IFP and A Level courses.
