Admissions Overview

Tanglin looks to enrol students who will embrace the challenges, opportunities, comradeship and satisfaction that is part of life at Tanglin. The Admissions Team would love the opportunity to talk you through the application process and to give you a tour of the school's facilities.

Tanglin Trust School provides British-based schooling for students aged 3 to 18. Students wishing to enrol in the school must be proficient speakers of English and display the intellectual capacity to fully participate in and benefit from the school's curriculum. Tanglin does not provide boarding facilities therefore students must be living in Singapore with their immediate families.

Please note that waitlists exist for most year groups. We operate a rolling waitlist system so if children are unable to gain entry on the desired period of enrolment their applications will continue to stay on our waitlist until a place becomes available. We do offer places throughout the academic year, with the exception of exam year groups, Year 10 and Year 12, where entry is preferred at the beginning of the academic year and no later than the beginning of the second term of either Year 10 or Year 12 subject to Head of School approval. Additional requirements apply to children who are Singapore Citizens. Please refer to Entry Requirements and Application Checklist for further information.

Parents are encouraged to apply early to secure a position on the waitlist and can contact the Admissions Team for estimated place availability by year group. Applicants will be placed on the waitlist from the date the completed online application and Enrolment Fee are received by admissions.
