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.

Tiffin Boys’ Choir and Tiffin Children’s Chorus are proud to be performing on three major releases this season. Madonna’s Madame X, her 14th studio album, has reached sales of 100,000 in the US. On this album she performs alongside Tiffin Boys’ Choir and Tiffin Children’s Chorus on tracks which include ‘Come Alive’ and ‘God Control’.



The Gabrieli Consort welcomed the Tiffin Boys’ Choir and Tiffin Children’s Chorus, alongside youth choirs from around the country, to their residential recording project in Ely last year: Gabrieli ROAR. One of the country’s most eminent ensembles,  the Gabrieli Consort have released the recording: ‘An English Coronation’ with launch concerts in Northampton and London performed by the Gabrieli Consort, DRET Youth Choir and the Tiffin Boys’ Choir. On this release, Tiffin pupils can be heard performing semi-choruses in works which include Walton Coronation Te Deum.



Also recently released was the Tim Burton film ‘Dumbo’. An estimated 35 million cinemagoers worldwide have heard Tiffin Boys’ Choir perform Danny Elfman’s score in musical numbers which include ‘Pink Elephants on Parade’ and ‘Train’s a Comin’.

11,000 candidates from 205 schools took part in the Year 10 Physics Challenge last month. Competitors sat two 25 minute, 30 mark multiple choice tests and the overall average for all students on both papers was 33/60, the average for Tiffin students was 41.5/60.


The aim of the competition is to encourage students in their study of Physics. It is not about practising past sets of questions and short term preparation to get a top mark. Success is achieved by longer term preparation, doing questions regularly at home and at school which stretch and challenge thinking and raise aspirations. It should also be noted that the content of the tests is designed to fit where the organisers believe schools will be in their study of GCSE Physics, but each school will teach the syllabus in a different way and there were a number of questions this year on topics that our Year 10 students have not yet studied.  As a result, all those who sat this Challenge should be praised for their participation and effort. Nationally, only the top 40% of candidates received a certificate of any colour, and only the top 10% received a Gold; nevertheless Tiffin achieved 7 bronze, 10 silver and 7 gold certificates from the 29 boys who took part. The gold winners are listed below, but particular congratulations must go to Oliver Tang in Year 10 who achieved the highest mark of the Tiffin students (53/60), and was in the top 100 nationally.

The Oval (3rd July)

It was brilliant to see two Tiffin cricketers at the Oval and particularly to witness their success in helping Surrey Schools to an emphatic win over London Schools by 7 wickets.



Rayhan Rafiq (Tiffin U15) opened the batting for Surrey and hit a highly impressive 32. Earlier in the day, Alex Cormack (Tiffin U14) had struck with his first ball in a spell of 2-20 which partially helped in reducing London Schools to a paltry 173 all out.
