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 8 October 2020 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.

 

MATHS CHALLENGE SUCCESSES

12 December 2019 by

SENIOR TEAM MATHS CHALLENGE

There has been much success by students within the last month! On November 6th, four students pictured right: Christian Cases (Yr12), Arnav Jadhav (Yr12), Jack Yu (Yr11) and Ojas Gulati (Yr10) represented the school in the SW Regional Final of the UKMT Senior Team Maths Challenge (intended for Sixth Formers). These students were selected after an intensive try-out process for which over 30 students in the school took part.

 

 

The competition consists of three rounds: a Group Round, involving 10 difficult questions the team work on together, a ‘cross number’ round (think crossword clues but with numbers), and the dreaded ‘Relay’ round, where the answer to one question feeds into the next.

 

After two of these rounds, Tiffin were level pegging on full marks with Kings College Wimbledon. But our team’s prowess and experience shone through on the last round, where we again achieved full marks bar a single lost time bonus, achieving an amazing score of 178/180 vs King’s 168/180 (who finished in second place). We will once again be taking part in the National Final in central London in February. Congratulations to the boys!

 

SENIOR MATHS CHALLENGE

 

On November 7th, 127 Sixth Form students (and younger) took part in the Senior Maths Challenge. This is a challenging paper, taken by hundreds of thousands of students across the UK, consisting of 25 multiple choice questions of increasing difficulty. We are delighted at the record results, with 11 students qualifying for the extremely prestigious British Maths Olympiad, reserved for only the top 1000 students nationally. Congratulations to the Year 13s (Ollie Coppelotti, Haotian Wu, Gus Goodman and Saomiyan Mathetharan), Year 12s (Christian Cases, Gianluca Maffi, Arnav Jadhav) and the Year 10s (Nathaniel Johnson, Ojas Gulati, Arlo McKillop) who achieved this accolade.

 

A further 40 students achieved a Gold certificate (top 10% of entrants nationally), with special mention to Kai Jewson and Lucas Bowman, who are only in Year 9. The Olympiad will take place on 29th November and consists of a 3.5-hour exam consisting of just six incredibly challenging questions. A further 29 students have qualified for the Senior Kangaroo follow on round. We wish these students the best of luck.

 

 

BRITISH INFORMATICS OLYMPIAD

On 12th December a number of Tiffinians took part in the British Informatics Olympiad. This is a 3 hour exam consisting of three difficult programming tasks, in which students code in any programming language of their choice. At least one Tiffinian has managed to reach the National Final at Cambridge University (consisting of the top 15 across the country) each year for the last 3 years.

 

 

We wish them the best of luck!

 

 


Large charitable donation to Lepra

12 December 2019 by

Students at Tiffin School are helping beat leprosy by fundraising and collecting donations for Lepra. Over 180 students in Year 7 took part in a Fundraising Educational Project and were able to raise £4128.29 for the international charity.

Leprosy is a curable disease that affects millions of people across the world, but is often misunderstood or ignored, along with those affected by it. Lepra work in India, Bangladesh and Mozambique to find, cure and treat those affected, along with educating their communities to help reduce prejudice and fear around leprosy. It takes just £25.00 to treat one person with Leprosy so Tiffin School have raised enough money to help 165 people.
