Tanglin Trust School is the oldest British International School in South East Asia and offers and provides a well-established history of excellence in education. It was founded in 1925 by Anne Griffith-Jones OBE, to provide high-quality British education to children of expatriate families. The school started in Tanglin Club (Singapore) with only five pupils.

The school has transformed over the years and nowadays, with over 90 years of experience, Tanglin Trust School provides a British-based curriculum for almost 3,000 students from 3 to 18 years of age:

736 Infant children

768 Junior children

1,320 Senior students

The student body includes 51 different nationalities, being the top 5 student nationalities: British, Indian, Australian, Malaysian, and Singaporean.

Tanglin’s facilities have also transformed from that beginning at Tanglin Club. The school is now located on 4.6 hectares in One-North, an attractive rural setting to the west of Singapore.

Tanglin Trust School’s vision says “We aspire to be the best school in the world”. With this moto, at Tanglin, they believe school life and every day of a child’s school life are important in themself, not just a preparation for the future.

The school is assessed within the British Schools Overseas (BSO) framework,  and all three sections of the school (Infant, Junior and Senior) have been awarded Outstanding, the highest possible grade.

In 2009 Sixth Form (Years 12 & 13, ages 16-18 years) introduced the International Baccalaureate Diploma, alongside A Levels, creating a dual pathway for students. In both pathways, Tanglin Trust School is achieving exceptional academic results that complement the excellent results at IGCSE and allow their students to go on to the world’s top universities.
