Tiffin is delighted to 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. We aim to admit around 100 new students each year to the Sixth Form, and we therefore expect about 50 per year to be girls, giving at least 100 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 10 October 2019 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, you can also follow developments on Twitter@Tiffin_School.

 

CONSTRUCTION OF NEW GYM

21 June 2019 by

The construction on our fantastic new gym, which will contain two new fitness areas, new changing facilities, and a fantastic new gym, will be starting on the 1 July.

 

 

With both our main and subsidiary  sports, and our regular fixtures, as well as a focus on health and fitness, sport is very important at Tiffin, and brings multiple benefits to our students, all of whom are encouraged to participate at one level or another. This exciting development will mark a significant improvement to our already strong sports provision, and will transform the breadth and quality of what we are able to offer.

 

 

The bulk of the funding for this project is coming from our government grant but as with the new dining hall we aim to raise a further £200,000 in order to fit, finish and furnish the extension.  If you would like to donate to this specific project please see the fundraising page of the Tiffin website.

 

 

I am very grateful that our fundraising campaign is being supported by former England cricket captain, and Tiffin student, Alec Stewart.

GOLD MEDALS IN JUNIOR MATHS CHALLENGE

21 June 2019 by

On 30th April, 264 boys in Years 7 and 8 sat the Junior Maths Challenge, a maths exam taken by around 200,000 students across the UK. The exam consists of 25 multiple choice questions of increasing difficulty.

 

The results are the School’s best yet: 134 Golds (thought to be the highest in the whole of the UK), 90 Kangaroo qualifiers and 9 Olympiad qualifiers. Only the top 6.7% of entrants nationally achieve a Gold medal, and roughly the top 0.5% for the Olympiad. Students have subsequently sat the follow on rounds and we eagerly await the results. A special congratulations goes to Lucas Bowman in 8KBA, who achieved the top score in the school.

 

Tiffin has seen a dramatic increase in performance in the Junior Maths Challenge in the last 7 years, with almost three times as many Golds as the 49 achieved in 2012.

 

Well done to our fantastic boys!
