Tiffin is delighted to announce that from September 2019, we will 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. Boys and girls are invited to apply for places by filling in the online application form, which is available on the website. We aim to admit around 80 new students each year to the Sixth Form, and we therefore expect about 40 per year to be girls, giving at least 80 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 4 October 2018 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, and will be regularly updated over the next few months. You can also follow developments on Twitter@Tiffin_School

 

Well-known author visits Tiffin

28 September 2018 by

On Wednesday 19th September, all of Year 7 had a fantastic visit from the author Andrew Lane. Andrew is the author of the best-selling ‘Young Sherlock’ series. He came in to talk about his new book, AWOL (Agent Without Licence). The book is about two boys, Sam and Kieron, who end up helping a British Secret Agent working for MI6 when they find some high tech spy glasses.

 

We had an interview with the author and we found many interesting things about him, such as how he decided to become an author.  He started out as a physicist, but was then asked to work for the British Secret Service. He told us about his life working with the military and his current career as an author. He told us that his experiences and travels in life were his inspiration for his writing. He actually started writing books when he was 25 years old, and wrote books for the ‘Doctor Who’ series. The directors thought he would be perfect to write the books since he was a massive fan. He has also written scripts for Wallace & Gromit.

 

We really enjoyed his visit and are looking forward to his next AWOL book, ‘Last Safe Moment’, which is coming out soon.
