David Games

Established in 1974, David Game is an independent college that aims to promote the joy of knowledge and learning while simultaneously maintaining the sharpest possible focus on the demands of the public examinations. We are a co-educational day college that teaches students at GCSE and A level so that they can gain entry to a university or career of their choice.

Our founder David Game insists on the teaching of traditional skills and on students understanding the importance of giving attention to detail.  We have an excellent track record of turning around previously underperforming students who benefit from the small classes, close monitoring system and exam-focused approach.  The College closely tracks the examination board specifications to ensure that tutors are following the current model and options and to see that all aspects of the syllabus are covered.  Homework is set regularly and students improve their examination technique through regular timed tests.
