Sixth Form students have many opportunities to enrich their educational and social experience over the two years and many participate in charity and not for profit enterprises. They compete at national level in the Young Enterprise Company Programme (UK winners 2013), achieve the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme Silver and Gold awards, take part in United Nations debating and many more clubs and societies. Student leadership is actively encouraged and many Sixth Form students are student leaders, prefects, subject associates and mentors for younger students in the school.

The outstanding A Level results gained by the students in a wide range of subjects are testament to their ability, hard work and the expertise of their teachers. In 2019 36% of all grades at A Level were A*, 74% were at A*/A and 91% at A*/B.

The higher education destinations of our Sixth Form students are also truly impressive, with 30 students gaining a place at either Oxford or Cambridge universities in 2019, 73% of students achieving a place at their first choice university and 79% 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 received personalised support throughout the university entrance process, with a dedicated team of tutors and senior staff led by our Higher Education Coordinator. Students can choose to study abroad and we have had Tiffin girls studying at Lafayette, Harvard, New York and Washington State universities in the USA, and Sciences Po in France and Groningen university in the Netherlands in recent years. Girls also go on to study at specialist higher education institutions for their chosen subject, such as Central St Martins for Art Foundation.

Providing high quality pastoral care is a priority in the Sixth Form and is led by an Assistant Headteacher who is also Deputy Director of the Sixth Form. The pastoral curriculum focuses on preparing students for their lives beyond school while ensuring support is in place during these two very important years. An extensive programme of outside speakers gives insight into wider society and future careers, providing our highly able young women with exceptional preparation for the next stage in their education and future employment.

The dedicated Sixth Form Centre opened in 2012 and was designed with student involvement. It is situated in the heart of the school, providing both quiet study and social areas over two floors.
