Charlotte came to DLD in 2010 seeking a more independent learning structure and collegiate ethos. She gained excellent GCSE results, and her high achievement in humanities and sciences was reflected in her A level choices. English and History emerged as providing the intellectual stimulation she would like to pursue at university.
