Thank you for the link - football is not on the list. Anyone know whether they have a football team? and how much opportunity children get to play football?

Thanks.

They play football inter-house, inter-class, after-school etc; but not much competitively. School is very strong in Rugby, Rowing and Cricket.

Thank you for your reply.

Could you please expand a little on "They play football inter-house, inter-class, after-school etc"

What I am trying to find out is, do they play football during weekly games sessions? Do they have a competitive school football team in each year, which plays matches against other schools?

Some of the Grammars that we visited had onsite sports facilities - where are the sports facilities for Tiffin located?

A few Grammar schools arranged working day visits for parents, which my DS found very useful and at the same time we could see the pastoral aspects of the school. Unfortunately, Tiffin does not arrange any such working day visits (I did visit on the open day) before the CAF form is submitted. Could someone please offer their views on the pastoral aspect of the school.

Thank you.
