Impressive students from DLD College London were celebrated during a special awards ceremony in the college’s stunning atrium.

Ahead of the examination period, the college held an event to reward select students from GCSE, Year 12 and Year 13, by presenting them with honorary awards to praise their excellent academic achievements this year.

The occasion was filled with entertainment from the talented cohort in between awards. Special guests, including Baroness Perry of Southwark and Richard Jones, Director of Property at the Alpha Plus Group, joined staff, students, parents and guardians as they enjoyed special musical renditions from the DLD Band, the Ukulele Group and a variety of singers and musicians.

Year 12 student Poppy Morris, received high praise for her talents this year and was met with an award for Progression and Achievement in Music Technology.

During the ceremony, Deputy Principal for Academics, Marie-Dominique Reza said: “We must recognise the effort, progress and achievement of our students. It isn’t just about what they have learned in terms of their subjects but also in themselves. Some have become more confident, independent, and resilient and they are now ready to go to university.”

Lady Perry also commented: “Congratulations to the students who chose to come to DLD College London, it is the best place in London that they could have chosen. I say that because DLD College London is dedicated to excellence and getting the best performance that every student who comes through the door is capable of achieving.”

Founded in 1931, DLD College London is one of the oldest and most prestigious colleges in the UK, and since its foundation has built a strong reputation amongst students, parents, schools and universities.

In September 2015, DLD College London relocated to brand new, purpose-built premises in the heart of London, on 199 Westminster Bridge Road, overlooking Westminster and the River Thames.

The college offers students the chance to study a wide range and flexible combination of A-Levels, GCSEs, International Foundation courses and BTEC courses.

As part of the Alpha Plus Group, DLD College aims to maintain a 'gold standard' of educational quality. Classes are small, enabling students and teachers to focus upon the most effective ways of learning.
