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

 

Success at London Youth Games

13 July 2018 by

In the London Youth Games sailing competition at Queen Mary Reservoir on 24 June, Magnus Handley, in Year 12, won a dominant gold in the Laser Radial class for Kingston.  He won all three races; the first two were decisive victories, but he gave himself more of a challenge in the third race.  An error in the pre-start resulted in him getting pushed over the line, so he had to come back to re-start.   Starting 15th, he sailed an excellent first beat, making his way up to 3rd place by the top mark.  By the end of the first lap, he was back in first again.  This is Magnus’s fourth consecutive gold medal at the London Youth Games, the best record by a male sailor since the games began.

 

 

Joe Allgar in Year 9 also competed in the London Youth Games for the Royal Borough of Kingston at squash on Sunday 8July in the National Sports Centre in Crystal Palace and won a gold medal. Joe has competed in many squash tournaments and is currently No 2 in Surrey U15.

 

 

 


U13A cricket success

13 July 2018 by

A day of school cricket that will live long in the memory: on 28 June our U13A cricket team beat the best around to become Surrey U13 Champions in the Watcyn Evans U13 Trophy. Eclipsing teams such as Hampton, KCS, Cumnor House, Wallington, Wilsons, Reigate Grammar, RGS Guildford, St Johns Leatherhead, Reeds, Caterham to name a few! And eventually cruising to victory in the final past a strong Trinity side who had beaten Whitgift in their semi-final!  To put this competition in perspective, Whitgiftare in the National Cup final next week and are strong favourites to win!

 

Congratulations to their coach, Mr Gnanendran, the boys on what has been an outstanding season and of course to Mr Williams for everything he puts into school cricket. The boys involved are a great credit to the school and have shown maturity, skill and grace well beyond their years.

 

 

And they are Champions of the Rokeby 6s!
