On Friday 1st July staff, parents, carers and friends bade
a fond farewell to our leavers in our traditional manner -
a barbecue and presentation in the grounds of DLC itself.
A good gathering enjoyed the hearty fare prepared by our very own catering team and as everyone settled in their seats, in what looked like a village enjoying a summer fete in a small square of marquees decorated in bunting, our Head Teacher John Taylor made his annual address.
After recognising the endeavour of students and staff alike, each Year 11 leaver was called up to receive their Record of Achievement to warm applause.
Later there were Special Awards to present and amongst the high achievers were: The Head Teacher Award (The Mill) winner Jordan Lee (winner of Maths, English, ICT, Science, Life Skills, Geography subject awards as well!), DLC's Head Teacher Award winner Tony Isaac (also Sports Award) and John Holland Shield winner Phil Hughes.
Another high achieving Special Award winner was Rodney Dalley who picked up the Boxing Award (also Life Skills and Attendance Awards) at DLC.
