About us

It is easy to take the school for granted, but what has kept me here are the superb opportunities and the stimulus many of the pupils provide.
Current Teacher
As our son departs the school, he certainly has an exceptional set of qualifications in his pocket, but he carried with so much more from his time as a Tiffinian: a thirst for learning and an enquiring mind; a keen sense of self-identity; strong peer friendships as well as a bucket-full of happy memories from his school days.
Ex Parent
As I depart for University, I would be very grateful if you could pass on my thanks to all the teachers who have helped and supported me over the last seen years and allowed me to make the most of all the fantastic opportunities I have been given.
