The following key areas support the implementation of our core values.

Extra Curricular and Co-Curricular Activities

Tiffin girls are expected to participate fully in the opportunities available to them beyond the classroom. There are a wide range of extra curricular and co-curricular activities on offer, including drama, music, sport, debating, Model United Nations and the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.

Safeguarding and Pastoral Care

Safeguarding and the pastoral care system underpin daily life in school to promote the happiness, wellbeing, health and safety of students. The pastoral care service provided is confidential and provides continuity with academic life.


The Tiffin Girls' School values the inclusive nature of the school and its multi-cultural character. We promote respect and understanding between pupils of different races, faiths, beliefs, cultures and backgrounds.

Higher Education and Careers

We encourage and assist girls to consider carefully and thoroughly the higher education and other further learning opportunities open to them, and to foster career ambitions in all fields, including those which have been traditionally male-orientated.
