Tiffin is delighted to announce that from September 2019, we will admit girls as well as boys into the Sixth Form, allowing the fantastic benefits and quality of Tiffin Sixth Form to be delivered within a mixed environment. Boys and girls are invited to apply for places by filling in the online application form, which is available on the website. We aim to admit around 80 new students each year to the Sixth Form, and we therefore expect about 40 per year to be girls, giving at least 80 girls in the Sixth Form overall, and representing approximately 20-25% of the total number of Sixth Formers.

Our Sixth Form Open Evening will be on Thursday 4 October 2018 when the academic and extra-curricular opportunities on offer at Tiffin's Sixth Form will be fully explained. Our website highlights the great opportunities at Tiffin, and will be regularly updated over the next few months. You can also follow developments on Twitter@Tiffin_School

 

Maths successes

18 July 2017 by

Tiffin enjoyed its best Junior Maths Olympiad and Junior Maths Kangaroo results on record. These competitions are follow on rounds for students performing exceptionally well in the Junior Maths Challenge (taken by roughly 200,000 students nationally), with only the top 0.5% of entrants invited to the Olympiad.

 

Of the Olympiad qualifiers, only the top 25% (of this already elite group) are awarded a Distinction, with 5 boys at Tiffin achieving this accolade this year. 3 boys achieved ‘Book Prizes’ (photo below), awarded to the top 50 nationally of all Year 7 & 8 students, an incredible achievement!

 

Congratulations to the following boys:

Ojas Gulati (Yr7): Gold Medal

(top 30 nationally)

Nathaniel Johnson (Yr7): Gold Medal

(top 30 nationally)

Jack Yu (Yr8): Silver Medal

(top 50 nationally)

Benedek Svilvasy (Yr8): Bronze Medal (top 150 nationally)

Arlo Mckillop (Yr7): Distinction

(top 25% of entrants)

 

Those with high scores in the JMC but just missing out the Olympiad go through to the ‘Kangaroo’. In addition to the 10 boys who achieved ‘Merit’ in the Olympiad an additional 10 boys attained ‘Merit’ in the Kangaroo, awarded only to the top 25% of entrants. Congratulations to Osako Caleb (Yr7) for achieving close to full marks.

 

We are incredibly proud of what our boys have achieved.

 


Tiffin boys awarded Arkwright Scholarship

18 July 2017 by

We were very pleased to be informed that  Year 11 boys, Tanveer Bhandari and Hemanth Veluru, have been awarded an Arkwright Scholarship. This is a highly coveted sponsorship within Engineering with only 200 scholarships being awarded annually. Tanveer and Hemanth were successful in submitting high quality concepts within a challenging design examination following a rigorous interview process.

 


Tiffin boys placed first at European Youth Parliament

18 July 2017 by

In early July a group of eight Tiffin students were selected to be the UK’s delegation to the next European Youth Parliament (EYP).  Since 1987, the European Youth Parliament has supported the development of young people into politically aware and responsible citizens by involving them in European political thinking and promoting intercultural understanding.

 

After winning a regional heat in March, they spent four days at Liverpool Hope University engaging in discussion and debate with finalists from 11 schools across the UK.

 

They were placed first by the jury and have now been invited to the 83rd International Session of the EYP which will be held later this year.

 

Many congratulations to the team of Ujjaval Dhingra, Andrew Conder, Sulaiman Amin, Nathan Langford, Adam Fereday, Haaris Malik, Aditya Deshpande and Oscar Duffy.
