About Us

The Tiffin Girls’ School, a selective state school and stand-alone Academy, is a vibrant and happy community where the students take centre stage. The school is currently home to 1,235 students, aged between 11 and 18, and as we celebrate our 144th year, has been providing an education where students can live up to the school’s motto sapere aude – dare to be wise. 

The school prides itself on encouraging students to aspire to excellence in everything they do, whether that be academic excellence, a passion and enthusiasm for the creative and performing arts, sporting prowess, or student leadership. A stimulating and rewarding range of extra curricular activities sits alongside a broad and challenging curriculum. Many of these are student-led and these elements of school life combine to develop inquisitive, confident, dynamic and successful young people ready for their future lives as global citizens.

The students achieve highly because they are incredibly motivated, hardworking and focused. It is, however, the caring and strong pastoral system, complemented by the development of strong friendship groups, which makes them feel happy and safe, allowing them to flourish in their time here. The school also benefits greatly from a very positive relationship with parents, working together in our common aim which is to encourage and support the students.

We hope this website will provide you with a snapshot of what life is like at Tiffin Girls’.
