The Head's Latest Newsletter


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 Fom to be delivered within a mixed environment. Girls and boys currently in Year 10 are welcome to apply for places by filling in the online application form, which will be available on the website from June. 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


Tiffin boys win German Debating Competition

9 December 2016 by

On Tuesday 29th November,  Tiffin went to Ibstock Place School for the 2nd annual German Debating Competition.  Tiffin put forward teams of 2 contestants in each of the 3 year groups: Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13.


The tournament consists of 3 rounds of debate on three different motions all done entirely in the German language. The contestants did not know which side they would represent until they were in the debating chamber.


The competition this year was stronger than ever but the level of fluency and spontaneous argument from both our Year 12 and Year 13 teams was excellent. Sebastian Tyrrall and Joe Dumpleton had to argue a range of topics: that social media has too many negative effects; that German bands should be forced to sing in German. Sanchith Nadanakumar and Andrew Siu had to argue that the Olympic Games were a waste of money, and in favour of the use of high pressure water to release shale gas from reserves deep underground.  The Tiffin Year 11 team was actually selected from Year 10, but both Abiram Uthyakumar and Euan O’Connor proved more than able. They argued amongst other things that young people should have a part-time job, but that homework should be banned!  Euan and Abiram (pictured below) won all three debates, and secured top spot by a single point over the hosts, and that is a very special achievement for two boys competing in a higher age group. They are all to be congratulated for their immense preparation and fluent logical arguments. IN GERMAN!!!!
