Tanglin Trust School Singapore has a long tradition of providing British based learning with an international perspective. At Tanglin we strive to make every individual feel valued, happy and successful. Responsibility, enthusiasm and participation are actively encouraged and integrity is prized. Working together in a safe, caring yet stimulating environment, we set high expectations whilst offering strong support, resulting in a community of lifelong learners who can contribute with confidence to our world (Tanglin Mission Statement).
Established in 1925, Tanglin Trust School provides British based education for 2,800 students from the ages of 3 through to 18 years. The English National Curriculum provides the basis for the programmes of study which is enhanced and enriched to reflect the calibre of students and the school’s international setting. Tanglin’s links with Singapore and Asia are increasingly woven into subject areas and key topics across the school to ensure students achieve a global perspective and that they have an awareness of the world and their place in it.
As students progress through the Key Stages of the English National Curriculum, they are presented with widening choices of subjects in their (I)GCSE examinations. In 2009, Tanglin became accredited as an IB World School and students can choose to study for the IB Diploma or A Levels in the Sixth Form. Tanglin graduates typically progress to universities of their choice which are among the best in the world.
Tanglin is honoured to be part of the dynamic hub that is Singapore. Over the years Tanglin has expanded to accommodate the increasing demand for world-class international education from families representing a diverse range of nationalities.
The School is inspected every year within the British Schools Overseas (BSO) framework, recognised by Ofsted. The last four inspections confirmed Tanglin's status as 'Outstanding', the highest possible grading. "The teachers' enthusiasm for learning is often infectious, leading to students seeing learning as a highly worthwhile and enjoyable process; students are highly motivated to succeed." BSO Inspector, 2017 (Senior School).
Tanglin is proud of its 92 year heritage. High levels of achievement are evident throughout the school and high quality teaching places great emphasis on meeting the needs of each and every student. In addition to its outstanding academic performance, Tanglin offers an extensive range of sporting, musical, creative, arts and recreational co-curricular activities. Tanglin students are also encouraged to contribute actively to the local community, support social projects and participate in a wide variety of extracurricular pursuits.
Underpinning life at Tanglin are a set of ten attributes, closely aligned with the IB's Learner Profile, which the school strives to develop in its students; to be balanced, caring, knowledgeable, principled, reflective and open-minded and to become resilient enquirers, risk-takers, thinkers and communicators.
