The DG Approach
Values and ethos
At David Game, we believe that it is essential to promote the joy of knowledge and learning, whilst simultaneously maintaining the sharpest possible focus on the demands of the examination.
We conduct regular audits of examination board requirements to ensure that students and tutors are following the current examination specifications and options. We place great emphasis on the successful time-management of our courses; it is essential that the teacher covers everything in the specification.
We use exam-based teaching methods featuring written homework and timed tests. Students receive regular examination practice in addition to sitting trial examinations in December and April. By testing students regularly, we ensure full understanding of their subjects and build confidence for the final examinations. Our teaching integrates content with study skills, revision testing, note-taking, critical thinking, speed reading, memory skills and time management.
The small class sizes (average 8) and intensive tuition mean that all students are given personal attention. Where additional tuition is necessary, it is available on a one-to-one basis.
Students’ progress and attendance can be monitored by parents/guardians on the College intranet. Parents are able to access the latest reports, marks and attendance records for their son or daughter through the Parent-Portal.
Students with Special Needs
The College values applications from students of all abilities, including those with special needs. Please advise us if you have learning difficulties or if you require special access arrangements.
Gifted and Talented students
Scholarships are available for students able to demonstrate special ability. This is usually assessed through performance in previous examinations such as GCSE.
