The Sixth Form at The Tiffin Girls’ School offers an exceptional educational experience which prepares students to achieve highly in both their A-Levels and future life at university while participating fully in and contributing to the world around them.
Sixth Form students have many opportunities to enrich their educational and social experience over their two years with us, and many participate in charity and not-for-profit enterprises. They compete at national level in the Young Enterprise Company Programme (UK runners-up 2021), achieve the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme Silver and Gold awards, take part in Model United Nations debating and many more clubs and societies, full details of which can be found here. Many of our societies are run by Sixth Formers, and student leadership is actively encouraged. Many Sixth Formers hold positions of responsibility as student leaders, prefects, subject associates and mentors for younger students in the school. Find out more about Sixth Form Admissions.
Our students’ higher education destinations are truly impressive, with 20 students gaining a place at either Oxford or Cambridge universities in 2023, 73% of students achieving a place at their first choice university and 68% going to a Russell Group university*. This is an incredible achievement, particularly given the highly competitive courses and institutions to which Tiffin Girls’ Sixth Formers apply. All students in the Sixth Form receive personalised support throughout the university entrance process, with a dedicated team of tutors and senior staff led by our UCAS & Higher Education Coordinator. Students can choose to study abroad, and we have had Tiffin girls studying at Lafayette, Harvard, Princeton, California Berkeley, New York and Washington State universities in the USA, Dalhousie University in Canada, Sciences Po in France, QMUL in Malta, and Groningen University in the Netherlands in recent years. Our students also go on to study at specialist higher education institutions outside the UCAS system for their chosen subject, such as Central St Martins for Art Foundation. A full list of our leavers’ destinations from the most recent UCAS cycle is available on this page.
* Russell Group: The Russell Group represents 24 leading UK universities which are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.
