'Fit for the Future'

Our 'Fit for the Future' fundraising campaign is underpinned by our core values of 'Community', 'Love of Learning' and 'Character'. It embodies our vision for students of all abilities to gain - through sport - the self-confidence, drive, resilience, teamwork and leadership skills to empower them to unlock their full potential, aim high and strive with ambition throughout their lives as well as the health benefits that come with this.

In addition, we will also have a fantastic facility to be able to offer support and opportunities to our local community.

By raising £200,000, we will be able to purchase cutting-edge equipment and much needed facilities to further improve our new Sports Centre so as to enable students to:

  • Establish healthy exercise habits for lifelong physical and mental wellbeing

  • Participate all year round in high quality sports education and achieve further competitive success at school, county and national levels

  • Discover new sporting, gym, dance and extra-curricular activities

Taking part in organised sport and activities at any level is the best way for staying healthy and having fun; it teaches focus, how to set goals, and how to bring out the best in others. We know there is a relationship between academic success and participation in sport.

At Tiffin Girls', we encourage students to aspire to excellence in everything they do and sporting prowess is no exception.

We have enjoyed many sporting successes over the years and we are proud not only of our current students individual and team successes but of the former students who have gone on to have careers in sport and represent their country.

The Sports Centre will enable the School to:

  • Broaden the curriculum offering: basketball, badminton and volleyball will be offered to all year groups and offer cricket coaching and athletic sessions all year round

  • Run more clubs at lunch time and after school

  • Host indoor sporting competitions at borough and county level including netball and volleyball fixtures, thanks to full-size courts

  • Develop specialist skills now afforded by full ceiling height e.g. badminton high serve and shooting in basketball. Long rolling skills, required for Wimbledon tennis Ball Programme, will now be possible indoors

  • Provide more student volunteering opportunities including Wimbledon Ball Girl training

  • The flexible space will allow a variety of uses from music to drama to extra curricular clubs.

  • Every student will be able to take advantage of this revitalised space.

Inspiring our local community to be 'Fit for the Future'

Sitting alongside our ambition to realise a Sports Centre that will inspire the next generation of women in sport and promote physical and mental wellbeing, we will be able to provide high quality and varied sporting provision for the local community. Addressing the inequality of the sporting facilities in the local area is something we passionately believe in and key to this is forging stronger links by supporting the needs of our local community by offering an enhanced range of sporting facilities outside of school hours.

There are a few local cricket clubs in the area such as Kingstonian CC, Malden Wanderers CC that are looking to develop their girls’ sections, and I believe that by having this extra facility in Kingston, this will enable clubs such as these the chance to grow stronger links with the schools’ cricket programme. This will then provide a pathway to enable more girls to play at either club or representative cricket in the coming year
