As a school we are a proud gold award member of the Jack Petchey Foundation Award Scheme. This means that we are able to recognise the work and contributions of our students. We choose to think of this as learning through action, and we focus on nominating students who make a significant contribution to the community. Being involved in this scheme also allows us to recognise the exceptional work of our staff, who work with students beyond the classroom, through the Jack Petchey Leader Award.
Each of the three student winners receive a certificate, medal, pin badge and £300 to spend on a school project of their choosing. They will also be honoured at a ceremony at the Rose Theatre next year. The winners for this Term below have decided to spend their grants on credit card readers for the Charities Committee, recycling projects and a French cultural trip. Many congratulations to Pasindu, Oscar and Constantin. Congratulations also to Ms Galvin, our LRC Manager.

Actively participating in Tiffin Student Voice showcases his commitment to student governance, and his personal qualities, marked by charm, capability, and a genuine passion for making a positive difference, epitomise the essence of a Tiffinian.

He epitomises the values and spirit of our School, embodying the qualities of leadership, service, and academic excellence that are deserving of acknowledgment and appreciation.
