We are proud to announce that on Thursday 8th October DLD College was selected as the winner for the Special Judges’ Award for Independent School of the Year 2020 and a joint winner with Elstree School for the Independent Boarding School of the Year 2020.

Judges recognised DLD College particularly for student wellbeing and boarding, commenting that it is a school “brimming with energy and offering something really special in the sector for its students, combining old and new approaches to education”.

The Independent Schools of the Year Awards are organised by Independent School Parent Magazine to celebrate the successes of independent schools and their students across the UK and in British Schools overseas.

A transcript of the award announcement can be found on the DLD website. A recording of the virtual awards can be watched here.

Congratulations to DLD staff for your special recognition during one of the most challenging years.
