Despite the A-level exam reform and the increase in unconditional offers at universities, DLD College students are celebrating excellent results, once again exceeding the national average. Staff and students can be proud of the results with 30% gaining the top grades of A*- A, compared with the national average of 26% and with a 97% pass rate and almost 60% achieving A*to B grades, the College has a lot to celebrate not only at A-level, but at BTEC and the International Foundation Programmes (IFP). DLD is proud of its high performing and diligent students who are reaping the benefits of their hard work and the excellent teaching, pastoral care and support they receive from their teachers.

As we celebrate with these students, we remember that these results, together with the wide range of experiences and opportunities offered by at College along with the pastoral care they have received during their time at College has helped prepare each and every student for the next stage in their journey of lifelong learning. We wish each and every one of them every success in the future and look forward to hearing about their successes through the DLD Alumni network.
