School Profile

Tanglin Trust School has over 85 years of experience and tradition in delivering quality learning and growing experience.

Tanglin is a vibrant and popular co-educational school where children learn to be successful and happy in their lives and also to be leaders of life in general. They develop high expectations of themselves in the academic, the aesthetic, the physical, the musical and the artistic spheres of learning. Tanglin students enjoy being at school; they look forward to the challenge, the opportunities, the comradeship, the satisfaction and fun that is part of daily life here. They are intentionally nurtured in this environment to become balanced, confident and articulate world citizens who have a view of what the world should look like and a deep desire to contribute to making it so.

Learning is no longer about simply accruing as much knowledge as possible. If our children are to succeed in today’s world, then we have to do more than teach them what we know. They must have the learning capacity to go far beyond our knowledge and experience. They must think critically, be able to analyse evidence and devise new pathways and solutions.

Students from Tanglin Trust School -Singapore were delighted to meet Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their visit to Singapore on Wednesday 12th September.  Four hundred of the 2,700 students at the school were lucky enough to have their names drawn out of a hat to represent TTS and welcome the royal couple during their visit to the innovative Gardens by the Bay, which opened earlier this year.  Despite a hectic schedule, the Duke and Duchess made time to speak to the students (aged from 5 to 18 years) at length and answered numerous questions.  When asked which super power he would like to possess, Prince William revealed that he would like the power of invisibility!  Perfectly understandable! It was a memorable occasion and the lucky students and staff were very proud to have been part of the royal visit.
