Tiffin Education Fund

Over many years the generosity of parents has helped us provide the best possible opportunities for all students through a range of extra curricular activities, on the sports field, in the performing arts, in the classroom and around the school. With public funding of state schools constantly under pressure, it is increasingly difficult to continue to deliver the rounded education that helps make Tiffin an outstanding school. The Tiffin Education Fund is a charitable trust set up to ensure that your voluntary contribution, whether large or small, benefits every student in some way.

A better place to learn

The Tiffin Education Fund contributes to our building improvement plan and the enhancement of the learning environment of our school. The Learning and Resources Centre was one such project, which now benefits every student, and a new Dining Hall and Sixth Form centre will be the next exciting development.

Wider opportunities

The Tiffin Education Fund helps to fund a comprehensive wider opportunities programme. We are able to offer our students a range of activities through many clubs, societies and outdoor activities, allowing them to develop broad interests that they will carry forward into their adult lives.

Academic excellence

The Tiffin Education Fund helps us to extend the academic programme within the school. Not only are we able to offer a wider curriculum and additional learning resources, but we are also improving the ICT infrastructure; our latest project is a new Virtual Learning Environment to benefit all students, staff and parents.

For more details on projects funded by the Tiffin Education Fund, please get in touch via the contact details at the bottom of the page.

“Every contribution you make to the Tiffin Education Fund makes a significant difference to our school. With your financial support we can offer these excellent opportunities for the benefit of all students.”

Hilda Clarke - Headteacher


Making a contribution

The current suggested contribution is £520 per year, per child. This amounts to £10 per week and we believe that there is no better way to help your son’s education than this. Many families support at a higher level than this already and others are contributing what they can. It is all appreciated equally and the benefits are immense.

You can make contributions on a monthly or annual basis, either by cheque, standing order or cash. Please click on the link to the Donations Form and return it to Tiffin School, Queen Elizabeth Road, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Surrey KT2 6RL. If you would prefer to speak to a member of staff about making your donation, please get in touch via the contact details at the bottom of the page.

Make your donation achieve even more at no extra cost to you The School takes full advantage of the Inland Revenue's Gift Aid Scheme, to enhance the value of donations from parents and other well-wishers made through the Registered Charity Tiffinian Limited. By reclaiming the Basic Rate of Tax, where applicable, we can increase the value of donations by 25%.

Your investment, their future

An outstanding School with your support

Friends of Tiffin Music

Music is central to everyday life at Tiffin, and the quality of music-making, whether in the classroom or in the many instrumental and choral groups, is nationally renowned and celebrated. However, government funding barely covers the cost of curricular activities, and the wide range of extra-curricular activities has to be independently funded.

The Friends of Tiffin Music raise funds through annual subscriptions and a range of activities such as running bars at concerts, Car Boot sales, Music Quiz evenings and producing CDs. As a result, in the last few years we have been able to support the work of the music department through providing new instruments, including a grand piano, amps, guitars and samba kit, funding the staffing of ensembles and master-classes, providing bursaries for those studying minority instruments or taking part in international tours, enhancing the use of ICT in the music curriculum through funding Sibelius composition software, and providing everyday equipment such as music stands, choir folders and sheet music, as well as undertaking large projects such as refurbishing and equipping the Music Studio and Room 95.

The Friends are integral to the department’s organisation and planning, establishing events such as termly gig nights and sessions for parents about supporting their son’s progress on an instrument, and help to create an exciting programme of events for the year which is supported by a large community of students, parents, staff and friends. In short, without the Friends of Tiffin Music, Simon Toyne and his team would be unable to continue with their work developing the rich variety of talents of our young musicians, so please complete this form and join us today.

Membership is open to all with an interest in music at Tiffin, particularly current or past parents, old boys, current and past staff and members of the Oratorio choir. Apart from providing a donation to funds, the annual subscription offers membership benefits such as The Baton (The Friends’ News Letter), Programme of Events, Ticket Privileges and Social Events.
