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

 

Cross Country Borough Championships

16 November 2018 by

60 students took part in the Borough cross country championships on Thursday 8th November to battle it out for the crown and went into the race as defending champions for the last 13 years in a row.

 

New Year 12 student, Ollie Coppellotti, went off like a rocket, quickly distancing himself from the pack. Behind him, a pack of Tiffin runners was forming as the boys moved their way up through the field. At the end of the first lap there were just two students in the top 20 who were not from Tiffin, and none in the top 10.  The race culminated in a thrilling three man sprint for the finish around the final field of the course with Ollie being hunted down by Eyoel Abebaw-Mesfin in Year 11, and Tom Armstrong in Year 10. Ollie did enough to secure the race win and earn the gold medal, while Eyoel was also awarded a gold medal as winner of the intermediate (Years 10 and 11) race and Tom the silver medal in the intermediate race, though they had beaten every senior runner bar one as well.

 

In the end, the Senior team showed just why Tiffin have not lost this race in two school generations with the ten Tiffin runners making up the entire top ten (second place went to Kieran Desmond and 3rd place to Kai Pishke), securing a perfect score and the team win as well.

 

In the intermediate competition Tiffin continued their dominance by claiming every spot on the podium (Will Murphy finishing just behind Tom Armstrong for 3rd) and very nearly locking out the top 10 as well, with finishing positions of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th and 9th and another emphatic team win. It certainly looks like it will take a miracle to stop Tiffin claiming the senior trophy again next year for the 15th time!

 

The Juniors also performed brilliantly and Tiffin won the cup overall with four of our Year 8 runners in the top ten, with Connor Foley finishing 2nd and Oscar Luck closely behind in 3rd.

 

Well done to everyone for representing the School in this competition.
