Head's Newsletter 17 March 2017

Dear Parents Welcome to another packed newsletter showing the extraordinary range of activities that Tiffin boys have been engaged with in the last two weeks. There have been a number of notable successes. In particular, mention must go to our dancers who performed in the London Youth Dance competition, coming third, a terrific performance, which you can watch by following the link. Also on the performing arts side, the choir have sung in 'Titanic live', a great opportunity to perform and showcase their talents at the Royal Albert Hall. In addition there is a report on the fantastic production of a Comedy of Errors which the Drama department put on. On the sports front there have been a number of successes in the rugby sevens competitions. In particular the U14s deserve special mention for their victories in both the Cedars and Surrey Schools Plate competitions, and again there is a link to watch their successes. The boys have been on many excellent trips and our success in the national debating competition is also reported on, as is the enjoyable Classics dinner! On the building front, the steel works for the foundations are now virtually complete and we are looking forward to the concrete for the ground floor slab being poured on Monday! It will not be long before we start to

see the new building arise! To see the film of the demolition of the old dining hall made by the boys of the Tiffin Broadcasting Network, click here .

You can of course make donations to the building appeal if you have not already done so by going to ParentPay . Alongside all this activity, the boys are of course working hard, especially those boys in years 11 to 13 who are approaching their exams. In addition senior boys have had lots of opportunities recently to listen to a variety of professionals giving different careers talks, including former pupils now working in various fields who have come back to share their experiences. It has been a real pleasure to catch up with these men who, seemingly not that long ago, were boys at Tiffin like your sons! Please do take note of the important dates below. Yours, M D Gascoigne, Headteacher
