Boarding Accommodation

21st Century Urban Boarding in Central London

At David Game College we provide a safe, nurturing, academically exciting and inclusive boarding environment, one in which all students are seen and their voices heard and listened to. We wish to develop a community of students who understand what their responsibilities are, and equally, what as a College our responsibilities are to them. Our values are strong and uncompromising. We want all students to have a rich, stimulating experience within our boarding provision, one where their ambitions are realised and students strive for academic excellence, equipped with the knowledge and skills to go on to lead successful and fulfilling lives.

We want our students to learn and develop in a safe space, one free from any form of intolerance, harassment or discrimination. We celebrate diversity and embrace the value that many diverse cultures bring to the academic life of the College. The College ensures that all students are given excellent accommodation and will provide students with high quality and varied nutrition, advice on staying physically healthy, and help and support to maintain positive emotional health and wellbeing. Above all, we are a community committed to high standards, hard work and mutual respect.

The Aims of the David Game Boarding Community

These include encouraging students to become global citizens who can rise to the challenge of the ever-changing demands of their future lives while developing into responsible and leading citizens in their communities.

We aim to:

1. Create a community that ensures the welfare and safety of its students in an environment where they can feel secure, happy and above all healthy.

2. Provide an atmosphere and structured environment that fosters high academic standards and intellectual curiosity amongst students, a place where young people can positively grow and learn beyond the curriculum.

3. Provide a wide range of extracurricular activities which will assist and develop students’ sense of understanding of the wider world and help them gain a sense of achievement.

4. Provide modern, purpose-built accommodation that is not only secure and comfortable but also respects student independence and privacy and provides high-quality individual rooms.

5. Encourage students to take a full part in College, in particular the social and cultural events, enabling students to usefully use their time while in boarding to develop themselves as individuals.

6. Provide an environment that respects everyone and has zero tolerance for harassment, discrimination, bullying or intolerance of others, and recognises the need to follow all the College’s boarding rules and regulations and be a good member of the boarding community.

7. Provide an environment which encourages the student voice, one that listens carefully to the needs of each student and provide channels for students to be able to reach out and have any of their day-to-day concerns listened to and acted upon.

8. Develop each boarder’s sense of self-belief, identity, confidence in their own abilities, and give them a chance to express themselves and explore their talents.

9. Develop leadership, confidence and resilience skills amongst boarders.

10. Work with boarding staff in an atmosphere of mutual respect and foster teamwork to help establish useful routines, which will help students enjoy their time in boarding.

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.
