Female

It is definitely a female, with a very narrow stripe down the breast. You age them very much like a Blue Tit, basically, by looking at the colour of the wing coverts...blue in adults, olivey-grey in young birds. It's often more difficult in Great Tits, though, and difficult to be sure, from these pictures.
