DLD College London, a pioneering independent school for students aged 13 to 19, is celebrating exceptional success following a recent inspection.

The Westminster Bridge-based college has been highly praised by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), which has deemed DLD College London to be fully compliant in meeting all statutory Independent School Standards.

Commending teaching and learning at the college, the diligent inspectors found that “teaching is consistently inclusive” and “the range of courses available allows pupils from different educational backgrounds to choose pathways that can fulfil their ambitions, including those pupils who have SEND. Therefore, whether boarders or day, domestic or international, pupils can flourish academically.” It was also acknowledged that “pupils achieve well in creative subjects such as art, graphics, photography, media studies and drama…well-designed resources and teaching expertise in media studies enable pupils in sixth form to finalise their documentary productions, meeting technically and creatively high standards.”

Significantly, the inspectors noted that “the school’s description that ‘London is our classroom’ is lived out” and “pupils enjoy the opportunities to embrace the multi-cultural benefits of their cosmopolitan local environment, and they prosper in terms of personal and social development and intellectual stimulation from the opportunities that are available to them.”

It was also highlighted that “a nurturing pastoral care system brings out the best in pupils.”

Principal of DLD College London, Irfan Latif commented: “I am thrilled to finally share the ISI report for DLD College London, which took place during the penultimate week of a jam-packed autumn term. I am delighted with the report and found the whole inspection experience positive – from the initial phone call to the final feedback session, the process was supportive and collaborative under the new ISI F23 framework. Well done to the entire DLD community – staff, students, parents, guardians and governors for all their support, dedication and encouragement. This is an incredible achievement!”
