The Head's Latest Newsletter


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


The Most Employable Student in the UK is a Tiffin student

27 April 2018 by

On Monday 26th March, PwC and RateMyApprenticeship crowned Dhruv Sengupta (Year 12) ‘The Most Employable Student in the UK’, after he won the final stage of the National Schools Employability Challenge (NSEC). Having competed in the initial rounds of the challenge online, Dhruv was one of sixty students selected from thousands of applicants to participate in the final at PwC’s More London office at London Bridge.


The final began with a round of assessments to examine all-round aptitude, including reasoning, core employment competencies and commercial and market awareness. It concluded with a final challenge – to work in small, randomly assigned groups and, within an hour, create a business plan for a health and wellbeing app. Each group was expected to present an app concept, a design for the app’s main pages, a profitability progression and ideas for funding to a panel of judges from PwC executive management. Dhruv’s group presented a meal-planning app, which was especially well commended by the judges.


The day itself comprised more than just assessments though. Finalists attended talks on interview techniques and had an opportunity to network with PwC employees. They also took a tour of the offices, including a visit to the More London Frontier Lab to experience the forefront of innovation in the industry.


During more talks from RateMyApprenticeship and Head of Community Affairs, David Adair, the winner of the NSEC was calculated. Dhruv’s excellent scores in the strengths assessments, alongside a strong contribution to his group’s proposal, meant that he was awarded the trophy (photo below), displaying his new title. He also won an iPad Mini and a coveted place on PwC’s Business Insight Week paid work experience.



Congratulations also go to Shiv Kapila, who has been successful in his application to join the McKinsey Leadership Academy this year, securing one of 100 places for Year 13s across the UK. The academy, which aims to develop future leaders, offers an excellent opportunity for networking with similarly impressive students and receiving training, mentoring and advice from McKinsey staff over the next two years.

Our splendid new building is now open for use.


The next phase of the School’s infrastructure masterplan is now complete and the building is open for our students.


A kitchen, a servery and a large multifunctional dining hall are located on the ground floor of the building. The area has natural light flooding  in through the glass walls and is incredibly versatile as it has been designed without the need for central columns. On the first floor are five new classrooms as well as departmental offices.


The School is very grateful to the many Tiffin alumni, parents and friends whose contributions achieved our £200,000 target and enabled the building to be completed and equipped to an excellent standard.
