I am thankful that the school encouraged me to develop as a person,” shares Meghan, the former Head Girl 2018/19 at Tanglin Trust School.
Without question, it is both refreshing and reassuring to hear that this respected international school prepares students like Meghan for life outside and beyond school. However, Tanglin Trust School also seems to be quite facile at readying its pupils for rigorous academic challenges, such as taking their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) exams. Not only has Tanglin Trust School students surpassed local averages, their scores – if compared to independent schools in the U.K. – would position them in the top 10 there! And, in 2019, all of its students achieved the full IB Diploma, compared to the world average of 77.4 percent.
Tanglin Trust School is the only international school in Singapore to offer both the IBDP and General Certifi cate of Secondary Education (GCSE) “A” Levels in its Sixth Form curriculum. This gives Tanglin Trust students the opportunity to tailor their learning based on subjects they are interested in, and in the style of learning that suits them best.
In addition, as one of nine institutions across Asia Pacific in a host partnership with the
International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), the school is able to offer IB workshops to other schools in the region.
“The teachers’ enthusiasm for learning is often infectious, motivating students to succeed,”
explains a British Schools Overseas (BSO) inspector.
From Nursery to Sixth Form, students at Tanglin Trust School are offered a rigorous and balanced curriculum, giving students work that challenges, excites and motivates. But, the school also emphasises the importance of participating in sport, the arts, music, outdoor education and more to deliver a well-rounded education.
“From the trips and classes to concerts, I know that when I remember my time at Tanglin Trust School, I will think, ‘That was incredible!’,” says Tim, the former Deputy Head Boy from 2018/19.
As one of Singapore’s top international schools, Tanglin Trust School receives hundreds of
applications annually. The school operates on a waitlist based on the date the application is received, and families often apply years before their desired intake year. So, the earlier you apply, the better!
