Local Community


The Tiffin Girls' School has a long tradition of community outreach focusing on developing and coordinating our strong links in the community.


Aspirations and Ambitions Project

The Aspirations and Ambitions project was launched in 2014 and was repeated each summer term before the Covid pandemic. The project aims to raise the aspirations and ambitions of the young pupils taking part and to develop the mentoring skills, professionalism and leadership of the participating Year 9 students.  

PSHE Programme

Year 10 girls are involved in a community outreach project in the spring and summer terms as part of their PSHE programme, helping local primary school children with their reading and mathematics for four weeks consecutively, on rotation.

Community Party

In the autumn term, we are proud to welcome residents from our local care homes to our annual Christmas Party for the elderly.


Maths Masterclasses

Maths masterclasses ran at The Tiffin Girls' School for 9 years until 2015, welcoming pupils from six local Kingston primary schools St Luke's, Latchmere, St Agatha's, Fern Hill, The Russell School and Meadlands. Supported by Sixth Form students, the Masterclasses incorporated fun quizes and games to develop the pupils' mathematical and reasoning skills, with a challenge to take home each week.. 

Charity Support


United World Schools

In 2014 United World Schools was chosen as the whole school charity. United World Schools aims to 'teach the unreached' by building schools in areas of the world where children have no access to primary education. The Tiffin Girls' School has been partnered with Chewaa school in the Sankhuwasabha region of Nepal. All of the money we raise provides the children with teachers, learning materials and a safe environment to learn. Tiffin girls' fundraising efforts through RAG week and Sports Day aim to maintain the school year-on-year. To find out more about the charity, please visit unitedworldschools.org.

Each academic year, the school's six houses raise money for a charity of their choosing. In 2022-23, the chosen charities are:


Bebbington Action Against Hunger
