Ambition| Curiosity | Self-belief |Tolerance
David Game College is committed to providing high quality education, ensuring that all students experience rapid learning and achieve their ambition. Our role is to ignite a flame of learning and curiosity within students so they can understand and relate to the complexities of the world they will inherit. We want our students to be ambitious and optimistic about their futures and to be prepared to push themselves to achieve the extraordinary. For us there are no barriers to learning; students should be encouraged to break free from any limiting self-doubts, and not be constrained by the past. In this regard, we have a strong commitment to students’ mental health and wellbeing, ensuring that students can handle setbacks and become resilient.
Our strategic vision is clear – select and develop the very best teachers to deliver a progressive and modern curriculum that not only gives students the knowledge and techniques to excel in examinations, but also the critical thinking skills and broader education to navigate their place in the world. Our ethos and values are reflected in our curriculum; students should not be limited or defined by their past educational or life experiences, or by the past itself in terms of questioning the world. It is the College’s role to develop students' self-belief and confidence to grow, ask questions and learn within a safe, tolerant environment, one that respects ambition and works towards enabling a dream to become a reality. The curriculum successfully blends traditional values with modernity, thus we never lose sight of the fundamentals – literacy and numeracy – and we take care to ensure that students understand the importance of detail, without losing sight of the bigger picture. We encourage and foster a learning environment that is tolerant and respects the beliefs and values of all. In this regard, the College is non-denominational and welcomes everyone.
Values and beliefs which unite the College include:
To be recognised as a centre of excellence for boarding and day education, and one that provides a rich educational experience to prepare students for the complex challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century.
