Inspections & Awards

Rated 'Outstanding' - The Highest Possible Grade in the UK Ofsted British Schools Overseas (BSO) Standards

We are proud to announce that for the first time ever, Tanglin Infant, Junior and Senior went through a single inspection process and was awarded the highest possible grade. This outcome bears witness to the dedication, skill, care and quality of our staff, and speaks volumes about the abilities and learning of our students across the three schools.

“The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is outstanding across the whole school and contributes to pupils of all ages and abilities making rapid progress and achieving consistently high standards in all subjects. Ongoing assessment and tracking of pupils’ progress are used very effectively to inform teachers’ planning and to ensure that all pupils are appropriately supported and challenged to achieve their aspirational targets. This leads to the majority exceeding age-related expectations at the end of every phase and achieving grades in IGCSE, A level and IB examinations which are significantly above UK and international averages. As a result, the school is consistently placed among the strongest performers worldwide, with pupils achieving Top in the World awards for their examination performance in a number of subjects.” - 2022 UK Ofsted British Schools Overseas (BSO) Inspection Report on teaching, learning and assessment."
