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.

Senior Girls win Cross Country Borough Championship

15 November 2019 by

On 17th October Tiffin had five teams competing for the school at the Borough Cross Country Championships for the first time, running in harsh conditions battling both the wind and the rain at Grist’s. We saw the first senior girls team compete in this event for the school. Representing Tiffin were Olivia Cronin and Neve Husaini. They ran fantastically well together pushing each other forward to a faster pace. Olivia ran a fantastic race finishing in third place and taking the bronze medal with Neve finishing close behind in fourth. For the first time in the history of Tiffin the girls together helped achieve an overall team victory in the Senior Girls event ahead of Holy Cross in second and Tiffin Girls in third.  Olivia and Neve should be very proud in helping to lead the way forward for girls’ sports at Tiffin.

Coco has been selected on the basis of performance and commitment to a programme of training and competition over a period of several years, and establishes her status as a UK Squad sailor who it is hoped will represent Great Britain at major international events in the forthcoming years.   Well done Coco!

 

 


Our amazing choir

15 November 2019 by

Even by Tiffin standards, the last few weeks have been incredibly busy for all the School’s choirs. On Tuesday, the Chamber Choir and some of the Trebles performed at the switching on of the Covent Garden Christmas lights, in collaboration with Universal, the film company behind this year’s major Christmas movie Last Christmas, which a number of the Trebles and Children’s Chorus recorded and filmed for last year, and which is being released this week. The event was an enormous and very glamorous one, hosted by Harriet Scott and Ronan Keating, and featuring celebrity guests from Last Christmas, Emma Thompson, Emilia Clarke and Paul Feig. The Choir sang “Walking in the Air” from The Snowman and “Once in Royal David’s City”, in which Jasper Jones (Year 8) sang the first verse solo beautifully. They then sang two arrangements of George Michael songs, “Faith”, and “Heal the Pain”, with a fantastic solo from Emily Jones (Year 12).

 

 

As well as the release of Last Christmas (look out for the Choir in the opening sequence), this month has seen the release of Dunedin Consort’s CD of Handel’s Samson, which eleven Trebles recorded with the ensemble in June 2018, directed by John Butt. The Trebles sing the chorus line throughout the recording.

On the same evening as the Covent Garden event, thirty Trebles made their way to the Cadogan Hall for the second of two performances of Mahler’s Third Symphony with the Prague Symphony Orchestra. The boys performed brilliantly, and for many of them it was their first big concert with the Choir.

 

Shortly before half term, the Boys’ Choir also visited Oxford to sing Evensong with New College Choir, performing music by Howells and Jonathan Dove.

 

The Chamber Choir made their debut at the Royal Festival Hall last week, performing in charity concert, ‘Night Under the Stars’, in aid of homeless charity ‘The Passage’. They performed a number of choruses from Italian operas, including the Te Deum from Puccini’s Tosca, which a number of the boys had performed as Trebles.

 

 

For the sopranos and altos of the Choir, this was the second major concert hall they had performed in in the space of a week. Alongside a number of Trebles and Children’s Chorus singers, they performed Philip Glass’s Music With Changing Parts at the Barbican the previous Wednesday. Unfortunately the composer had become ill during the previous part of the group’s tour and wasn’t able to perform in the concert, but it was incredibly exciting to perform such an important work with the group for whom it was written.
