It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to The Tiffin Girls' School, a vibrant and happy community where the girls take centre stage. 

The school is currently home to 1114 girls, aged between 11 and 18, and for over 135 years has been providing an education where girls can live up to the school’s motto sapere aude – dare to be wise.

The school prides itself on encouraging girls 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 broad and challenging curriculum sits alongside a stimulating and rewarding range of extra curricular activities, many of which are student-led, and these elements of school life combine to develop inquisitive, confident, dynamic and successful young women ready for their future lives as global citizens.

The girls achieve highly because they are incredibly motivated, hardworking and focused. It is, however, the caring and strong pastoral system, complemented by the development of enduring 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 to encourage and support the girls.

The school was founded in 1880 to provide ‘a superior education for girls’ and it continues to fulfil that aim today, ranking among the very best state schools in the country, as we enable our girls to be the very best versions of themselves, challenging them to: Achieve Highly; Participate Fully; and Decide Wisely.
