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.

 

Trampolining success

13 September 2019 by

James Dowrich in Year 12 began his trampolining career 12 years ago and now jumps as a national trampolinist. He has represented Tiffin in the schools’ national events and through his club, and hopes to enter his first international competition next year. Last year he won his first national finals event on 11 November at the EIS Arena in Sheffield. Since then had been working towards his latest competition, which was the National Development Pathway (NDP) finals on 14 July and once again won his 17+ age group. He trains for around 10 hours a week to ensure that he can achieve his goals for the season and now he is preparing for this year’s league finals which will be held in Derby on 10 November.

 


GIRLS JOIN TIFFIN SIXTH FORM

13 September 2019 by

This September we welcomed over 100 new faces into the Tiffin fold, including for the first time, female students. With much excitement from staff and students alike, our annual induction programme started on Tuesday 3 September with students quickly being introduced to Sixth Form life at Tiffin before a slightly more relaxed activities day at our Grist’s Sports Ground on Wednesday. A morning of team building activities saw new form groups get to know each other and in the beaming September sunshine it rapidly became apparent that we as Tiffin staff are in for a treat as all of the students took on the challenges with great enthusiasm and fantastic shared effort. Since then, as normal lessons have begun, our Year 12s have continued to impress as they embrace every aspect of Tiffin life from prefecting duties to having our first female rugby players. Staff too have come to me on repeated occasions remarking on how wonderfully intelligent and engaging their Year 12 classes have been. We look forward to seeing our Year 12s grow into their A Level subjects and increased roles of responsibility across the school.

 


CELEBRATION EVENING FOR LEAVERS

13 September 2019 by

It was excellent to be able to see the A level students for the last time as a cohort at their Leavers’ Celebration last night.  We were delighted to welcome old Tiffinian, Samir Desai CBE, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of the peer-to-peer enterprise Funding Circle as our special guest.

 

 

 

It was amazing to recall the successes of this year group, and we wish them all the very best as they move on to university or employment and hope they keep in touch through the Tiffinian Association, which unites the alumni of the School.  The event also marked the inaugural outing of the new Tiffin Chamber Choir.
