Boarding Accommodation

21st Century Urban Boarding in Central London

David Game College is an exciting educational establishment to be part of these days. Ambitious, driven and innovative, the College provides all of its students with exceptional academic and pastoral support. The addition of boarding to our day-College provision is one of the most important developments in the College’s history. I strongly believe that boarding not only enhances and enriches the academic experience of students, it also provides the environment for students to go beyond the core curriculum, and explore and discover what really interests them. Boarding improves everything we do: it helps students form strong friendships and a cohesive college community, it offers students the opportunity to grow in confidence and develop new skills that prepare them for life. Boarders have all of the College’s facilities at their disposal. There is always scope to establish new clubs or arrange trips. London certainly has a great deal to offer, our weekend boarding trips are going to include sightseeing around London as well as surrounding areas.

My role, and that of all the staff at the College, is to provide you with a safe, nurturing environment within which no student will be limited or defined by their past, and where dreams can become a reality and all can excel academically. I look forward to welcoming you to David Game College Boarding.

- Mr John Dalton
Co-Principal

Central London Location

David Game College is located in the heart of the City of London, with part of the ancient walls of the Roman City of Londinium running through its basement and displayed in a museum within the Boarding House itself. Historic buildings such as the Tower of London, Bank of England and St Paul’s Cathedral are interspersed with modern steel and glass skyscrapers - the Gherkin, the Walkie Talkie, the Cheesegrater - which mixes the ancient and the modern, and tells the story of the development of London over the past 2000 years. Shopping areas such as Spitalfields Market and Borough Market (London’s most renowned food market) along with the art, design and fashion hub of Brick Lane and Shoreditch are all within easy walking distance. Many of London’s elite universities such as LSE, UCL, King’s College London, City and SOAS can also be easily visited from the College. All of which creates a unique and inspiring environment for our students to live and learn in. David Game College is only a short bus or underground journey away from London’s many mainline train stations. It is also quick and easy to reach, via express train and underground, from the major London airports of Gatwick, Heathrow or Stansted.
