Tanglin accepts applications all year round and may be submitted up to three years prior to the desired year of entry. Beyond Nursery, place availability relies on withdrawals and, as such, demand generally exceeds availability of places in all other year groups. Entry at Nursery is strongly encouraged for younger applicants. Additional considerations apply for children who are Singapore citizens (please refer to our Admissions Policy and Conditions Governing Enrolment).

Below outlines our admissions process, and our team are on hand to guide you if you require help along the way. 

Step 1 – Submit application via our online portal

Applications may be submitted at any time from three years from the date of desired entry.  To be considered for entry in August 2022 applications should be submitted by 15 February 2022.  Applications must be submitted via our Online Admissions Portal, and must include allrequired documentation.

Step 2 – Application fee payment

Once your application has been submitted, the application fee of SG$535 must be paid for the application to be processed. Applications will only be accepted once payment has been received.

Step 3 – Interviews and assessments

Interviews and assessments are required on an age-appropriate basis. Assessments are completed throughout the year and our Admissions team can advise you on any assessments your child may need to take. Interviews are conducted for students applying to the Junior and Senior schools.

Step 4 – offers

All Nursery offers are made towards the end of January prior to an August start. Most offers are made for all other year groups in the April prior to an August start. A small number of early offers may be made earlier at the discretion of the School. Students who have not been offered a place will be notified, with a small number waitpooled for entry should places become available during the year (up to a maximum of two years).
