Tanglin's academic traditions and approach to teaching are firmly grounded in an enhanced and rigorous English National Curriculum, however, there are many aspects of school life that have a global focus and are contextualised to our location in South East Asia. We are proud to be the only school in Singapore offering both IB and A Level  at Sixth Form giving our students the opportunity to choose the best pathway for them. A globally recognised, prestigious international school, Tanglin students go on to some of the best universities in the world.

From the head teacher

"Tanglin is a vibrant coeducational day school where children learn to be successful and happy in their lives. In developing the whole child, we set high expectations for achievement in the academic and the arts, whilst also nurturing their life skills. Our students enjoy being at school, they look forward to the challenge, the opportunities, the comradeship, the satisfaction and the fun that is part of Tanglin everyday daily life. It is important to us that they have a clear view of the world, and their place in it, along with a deep desire to sustain it" –Peter Derby-Crook, Chief Executive Officer
