Tiffin is a great school which you can truely trust and rely on. It has abolished all the home work for Year 7 boys . However, a new method of "INDEPENDENT STUDY" programme has been introduced to the young boys. It will transform the boys into the active learners who will feel at home easily when they are in the 6 Forms and the future university lives. On the top of that , Tiffin's boy can enjoy the life to the full! A lot of extra curriculums are keeping the boys busy and happy. Well done , Tiffin! My son's singing vioce maybe not good enough to be chosen as Tiffin Boy Choir who paly often at the Royal Opera Hall . Nevertheless, I still encorage him to take part in its musical education which i believe he will benefit later in his life. :lol:

I hadn't realised they had abolished ALL the homework for Year 7 - I guess as long as they parcipate in the Independant Study it would work - I'm not sure how I feel, I do like the idea of at least one piece of homework.
I suppose they may look at it again in a few years.

This could be a key motivator for DS! We attended the open day last week and were impressed by the heads attitude to the holistic approach rather than being just a high grade producing sausage factory.

DS is into both sport and music so it would fit us well if he passes the test (not this year but next).

One thing I was not sure about was exactly how much sport they actually do since their playing fields are not local.

SVE

I know nothing. We're not up for Tiffin Boys until Dec 2009. I'm having a year off.

Hi, Jasmine: the grammar schools often gave the offers to a few boys on the waiting list whose score was lower than the "Original cut -off mark" because some of the boys who got the offer declined for vaious reasons.
So, every year there is a "final cut- off mark".

Regards

Hi Geling,

Thanks for your reply.


I am shocked at the number of applications received. :shock: Its alot more than Wallington Grammar.
Does that mean you have to get every question right for the two papers in order to be successful ?
