Games & the Arts
We recognise the benefits of regular exercise and students are encouraged to keep active through a range of activities including football, netball, yoga, rowing, running club, swimming and many more. Our co-curricular programme encompasses music, drama and art clubs, cultural trips, concerts, events and much more.
Pastoral care is a strength at DLD which is demonstrated by the opening of our Wellbeing Centre in 2018 allowing students to access a range of support services in one location within College. This includes the College Nurse, Counsellors, Life Coach, Head of Wellbeing and Student Officer. Boarders receive only the best, individualised pastoral care through Houseparents and Personal Tutors who meet with students every week.
Every year DLD College students secure places at top Russell Group universities including Oxbridge.
