College life extends beyond the classroom and there are a wide range of events to enjoy.

Awards Ceremony

This is an annual event which celebrates students for their achievements and success.

A Level Recitals

Every year during the Spring term our A Level Music students record their Recital coursework. The Recital is open to other students, friends, tutors and parents to watch and becomes another opportunity to showcase DLD’s musical talent.

Charity Events

At DLD we are committed to giving back to the community. Every year, events are organised to support different charities.

End of year Art Show

This annual event takes place at the end of each academic year and features a selection of current GCSE, GCE and Foundation Art, Graphics and Photography students’ work.

New Parents’ Social Event

This takes place towards the end of September. It is an opportunity for the parents of new students to come to the College, meet tutors informally and find out more about how the College operates.

Public Lectures

Throughout the year, different faculties take their turn to host lectures at DLD. Guest speakers are invited to talk to students, staff, parents and members of the public.

Search for a DLD Star

This is a talent competition, which takes place during the first term. It is open to all students (and staff) and can include any type of performance style.

Summer Ball

Each year DLD hosts a Summer Ball which includes a sit down meal and fantastic music. This event is to celebrate the end of the students’ academic year.

Winter Concert

This takes place every year in December and we often have themes which includes music and poetry carefully selected to blend seamlessly into each other.
