Established in 1974, David Game College is one of the most successful independent co-educational colleges in London.
DG specialises in preparing students for university entry, by providing an extensive range of GCSE and A level courses and focusing on examination success. DG also runs their own University Foundation Programme and offers courses in English as a Foreign Language.
DG admits students between the ages of 13 and 22 years, with up to 200 students following full-time courses every year. Students choose David Game College because of the quality of teaching and the high level of individual attention and support they receive here.
At David Game College they take great pride in their ability to cater for students of all educational abilities and backgrounds. The tutors have high expectations, so all students – including the most able – are stretched intellectually and encouraged to aim high. If students are capable of gaining entry to the most competitive degree courses and the most prestigious universities, they have an excellent chance of being successful here.
For many students, David Game College represents a fresh approach, a new beginning. This is particularly true where students have become disaffected by large impersonal classes at their previous school or college, leading to significant underachievement.
David Game College has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, the Government body responsible for monitoring standards in education. The College has been awarded Tier 4 Sponsor status by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI).
