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.


Success at Year 11 Physics Challenge

29 March 2019 by

This year 23 Tiffin students chose to sit the Year 11 Physics Challenge. This exam is designed to stretch students to their limits, and to encourage students to push themselves in physics. The paper is set to differentiate the strongest pupils at this stage of their studies, from an already select group of students that sit the test, with only the best in the country taking this paper. The paper also requires rather more of a sprint than a typical paper that they would find in a public exam as it is designed to be very difficult to reach the end in the allotted time.


All students that took part in the Challenge should be very proud of their achievement and those that may think they have not done so well should remember that it is no disgrace to be amongst the lower levels of the astonishingly smart bunch who take this test. The Physics Department encourages all of you to continue to challenge yourselves and to continue problem solving.


This year, only the top 48% of students who sat the test nationally received a Bronze certificate or higher and only the top 15% received a Silver or higher, and we congratulate the 6 Tiffin students who earned a Bronze and the 6 who earned a Silver.


However, particular congratulations must go to the three students who have shown themselves to be at the top of this already elite group by earning Gold Certificates, awarded to just 5% of competitors. So well done to Geethaartha Vagga (11RA), Chin Wei Tang (11RCG) and Sebastian Pereira (11AB) who all achieved gold certificates.
