Governor Vacancy (voluntary) 

The Tiffin Girls’ School, a selective girls’ grammar school with more than 1,200 students on roll, is consistently one of the most successful state schools in the country. The school has a high ethnic student representation which makes for a diverse and inclusive stakeholder community. It is full of opportunity, creativity and challenge, and all aspects of student progress and achievement are celebrated. The vision of the school is to provide ‘an intellectually stimulating and outward-facing school, enabling students to flourish and contribute to the society’.  The Tiffin Girls’ School is an Academy, and the Members of the Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a Governor for a four-year term of office, who is in, or has held, a senior position in the public or private sector and has good knowledge and experience of audit and financial management. A CCAB qualification and/or a good understanding of finances in the state education sector would also be a definite advantage. They should be a confident leader and have a strong commitment to selective girls’ education and its role in enhancing social mobility and diversity. In common with many Governing Boards (GB) in schools and across the wider charity sector, The Tiffin Girls’ School’s GB currently lacks diversity. We recognise that a more diverse range of Governors can help demonstrate that the GB is fair and open in all its dealings and increase stakeholder confidence. We would therefore welcome candidates from different ethnic groups. To apply, please complete and return the application form (governor) below, together with your CV, to clerk@tiffingirls.org          
Closing date:  Monday 16 May, 10.00am
Interviews: Monday 23 May, afternoon

Working at The Tiffin Girls' School

The strong team of highly qualified staff has extensive and varied experience. They share a commitment to high standards of learning, discipline and care for the personal wellbeing of each student. Opportunities for professional development are essential and care is taken to ensure all staff have access to training and new experiences through a comprehensive and personalised programme of CPD, both elective and directed through twilight and inset days. Based on the needs identified by appraisal and teaching and learning reviews, our CPD programme offers bespoke pathways. There is a well-developed programme of induction for all new colleagues and newly qualified teachers and staff are encouraged to join working parties on specific areas of development. There is also an active staff association which arranges social activities throughout the year. Staff describe The Tiffin Girls’ School as a unique place to work because:

“working here means you teach girls who want to be challenged and inspired and who challenge me every day”

“the attitude and behaviour of the girls makes it a unique place to work – they are willing to throw themselves into everything with enthusiasm”.
