A Progressive Learning Environment

We aim to ensure that the goal of all students is the highest possible academic achievement. Our A Level results have consistently placed Tiffin as one of the best performing state schools in the country, allowing our students to proceed to the most competitive universities and courses. We offer a wide range of A Level courses, with students taking a minimum of three A levels; those following the Further Maths course will take four. We aim to encourage independent learning through our superb Learning Resources Centre with its open plan IT suite, as well as through lectures in the Judge Lecture Theatre, helping our students in their transition to Higher Education. Sixth Form students also make use of our excellent Virtual Learning Environment, and the wireless internet network throughout the School, which they can freely access.

In addition all students engage in an enrichment programme with Tiffin Girls’ School, to complement their A level studies. They also have opportunities to take on extended projects, sport, volunteering or work experience, and engage in the many wider opportunities available at Tiffin Sixth Form. These programmes and opportunities aim to provide students with an understanding of their place and responsibility in the local and wider community, and help them develop their personal skills. Our overall curriculum and programmes are ultimately designed to encourage students’ development into mature and responsible young people, and to ensure their successful transition beyond school to university, careers and the wider world.

Please see the Course Guide for details of the A Level courses available.

Care, Guidance & Support

Pastoral care, guidance and support is very important; Sixth Form students are members of a small tutor group, under the supervision of a Personal Tutor who provides pastoral support and care to students, as well as monitors academic progress. One of the key roles of the Tutor is to develop the social and moral dimension of their tutees, aiming to ensure that all sixth formers reach their potential as citizens, academic students, leaders, and team players. Our working partnership with parents is also crucial to this success. Our team of experienced tutors and staff also give important guidance on Higher Education and the application process to university. In addition, all students experience a thorough induction programme at the start of Year 12 to facilitate the transition into the Tiffin Sixth Form.
