DLD College was founded in 1931 and is the oldest tutorial college in London. Today, DLD College has over 350 students studying for GCSE and A levels.
Two thirds of the student body are taking their A Levels in the usual way (over two years), however we have a large number who join the college at the start of Upper Sixth. No subject restrictions apply at A Level. Additionally, there are over 40 GCSE students at DLD. All GCSE syllabuses are fully covered so students don't need to worry about changing exam boards or subjects. The College also offers supplementary lessons in English as a foreign language which are taken by 6% of the student body.
For all our programmes, classes are small: on average 6 students in each group. This means that students quickly develop the confidence to seek guidance and help. The teaching staff are highly qualified and chosen not just for their expertise but also for their ability to relate positively to young people. The college aims to make learning interesting, active and rigorous. One third of the teaching staff were educated at Oxford or Cambridge, two thirds have either a Master's degree and /or a PhD qualification.
Each student is assigned a personal tutor to supervise pastoral care, liaise with parents or guardians and assist them with their university (UCAS) applications. We have a specially appointed UCAS coordinator who oversees all UCAS applications and arranges visits from university admissions officers to talk to DLD students about developing attractive applications. For those who wish to apply to medical school and Oxford or Cambridge, we have tutors who specialise in such applications. DLD also arrange Oxbridge preparation and practice interviews. The level of pastoral care is described in the most recent British Accreditation Council inspection report as 'exceptionally high'.
