The Tiffin Girls’ School, a selective state school, is a vibrant and happy community where the girls take centre stage.
The school is currently home to 1196 students, aged between 11 and 18, as we start our 140th year and 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 Tiffin Girls' School is a six-form entry selective school. The school has spacious though functional premises, which provide extensive facilities in all areas of the curriculum. Specialist teaching areas include thirteen science laboratories, three art rooms, one of which is a fully equipped ceramics room, a drama studio, music suite and a computer suite of two computer rooms, with laptops and clusters of machines in design technology, music and science. The LRC has additional computers available for lessons or independent study. There is a large assembly hall, a separate dining hall and two gymnasia. Sports facilities include an astro turf, resurfaced netball and tennis courts.
The school's proximity to London makes it possible for students of all ages to attend concerts, plays, theatre workshops, lectures, exhibitions, one-day conferences and international matches. The school makes good use of this facility as trips and activities outside of school form an essential part of the students’ educational experience. Parental contributions and fundraising have greatly enhanced the accommodation in the school. In the recent past, two new classrooms, a learning resources centre and two science laboratories have been added. In addition, a new teaching block becomes available in December 2019 through funding secured by the school.

One of London’s liveliest boroughs. Life revolves around the Thames, with the buzzing market town of Kingston being the main attraction. Kingston High Street runs parallel to the Thames so it many of its favourite restaurants are found situated along the banks of the riverside.
With the popular Kingston University based here there is an abundance of bars and clubs to entertain the vibrant student population and younger residence.
Kingston upon Thames is one of the greener areas of the capital with two royal parks in neighbouring Richmond upon Thames. Local parks hold facilities to cater for all those who enjoy the great outdoors, such as Canbury Gardens which is home to the Kingston Rowing Club boathouse and is in turn a great spot for fishing.
Only half an hour from central London it has excellent train links. Situated near to the A3 and M25 it is also easily accessible by car. The river bus as an excellent alternative to get into Canary Wharf and London Bridge.
Wimbledon Championships - In the neighbouring Merton bordering Kingston, the world famous Wimbledon Championships takes place. Indulge yourself in summer fun with a spot of Pimms, and Strawberries and Cream.
The Thames - Enjoy the beauty of the Thames when the weather permits it on foot, bicycle or boat.
Kingston Markets - Hunt for bargains in Kingston’s 800 year old markets.
Chessington World of Adventure - One of the UKs biggest and best theme parks. Great for those ‘kidults’ amongst us.
