Head teacher’s Philosophy

‘I believe education is about more than grades. It is an awareness of the world, independent thought and values, the benefits of team sport, of culture, of academic ambition and learning with enthusiasm; of growing up in a safe and caring community where all are passionate about what they do. That is what we aspire to and, I am confident, we deliver.’

Outstanding Characteristics

A distinctive, multi-award winning boarding and day school with modern educational facilities located on London’s iconic South Bank, overlooking the Houses of Parliament. Described by the Good Schools Guide as ‘one of the most unique and exciting schools in Britain’ and recommended by Tatler as ‘pioneering a modern alternative to traditional boarding schools’. DLD offers an innovative curriculum and a range of courses, future-proofing students and creating unique learning opportunities.
