Our School

Established in 1925, Tanglin is the oldest British international school in South East Asia. Tanglin provides the English National Curriculum with an international perspective to children from 3 to 18 years in Singapore. It is the only school in Singapore to offer A Levels and the IB Diploma in Sixth Form.

Tanglin is a vibrant co-educational school of 2,800 students representing over 50 nationalities. The school is split in the Infant School (3-7 years), Junior School (7-11 years) and Senior School (11-18 years), which includes Sixth Form. As a not-for-profit school, tuition fees are devoted to the provision of an outstanding education.

Drawing on passionate and dynamic staff, Tanglin aims to nurture students to achieve their intellectual, spiritual, cultural, social and physical goals.


A Community of Educators

We believe that professional development and growth is only really possible when we work with other people. We run a number of events and workshops that are open to all educators. Take a look at our schedule to find out what's on.

"The most valuable resource that all teachers have is each other. Without collaboration our growth is limited to our own perspectives."

Our Staff

At Tanglin Trust School all staff and governors have an equal entitlement to Professional Development. This process ensures the positive growth of professional, open-minded and principled individuals, which in turn impacts on their work, the work of their team or school and ultimately the learning experience of the students in our care.

We believe professional development is a collective responsibility which promotes, develops and supports members of our community in their commitment to lifelong learning. A cycle of review, delivery and evaluation exists in order to enhance achievement, support career development and drive improvement.

Leading PD

Professional Development at Tanglin is lead by our CPD Director, Benyna Richards. Benyna is a trained secondary school teacher with a background in initial teacher training, leadership development and educational research.
