Campus Capacity Information

Tanglin Trust School offers world-class learning and sporting facilities in an environment that is highly conducive to student development. The School is situated on Portsdown Road, approximately 15 minutes drive from the west of the city centre, in Singapore's dynamic ‘one-north’ area, a hub for knowledge-driven industries that are set amongst the heritage and nature areas of Rochester Park, the Wessex Estate and Nepal Hill. Tanglin is easily accessible from Singapore's main residential areas.

The School comprises separate modern buildings for Infant, Junior and Senior School students. There is also Sixth Form Centre, the Training Ground at Media Circle (near MediaCorp), on-site Playing Field (formerly known as the Astro Turf) and the Nixon building, which was completed in 2016.
