The Middle School (the start of Senior School for Years 7 to 9, ages 11 to 14) programme prioritises the wellbeing of students. Through a wide range of service, co-curricular and house opportunities, plus the exceptional quality of pastoral care, students develop the skills to be able to thrive not only in in learning but in life.
A broad and balanced curriculum in Middle School gives students opportunities to consciously develop their learner profile attributes and develops a community of happy, engaged learners. Through an array of subjects, students have opportunities to use their character strengths to practise skills such as reflection, critical thinking, research and creativity. Our nurturing approach allows students to learn how to learn, enjoy learning, and be equipped with the skills needed to flourish as they move onwards to Upper School.
Tanglin's Senior School School (Middle, Upper & Sixth Form, ages 11 to 18) prides itself on the individual care, guidance and counselling offered by our robust support structures, the exceptional academic achievements of our students, and the development of skills and attributes through learning experiences beyond the classroom.
After a three-year hiatus, Tanglin returned to the big stage with Broadway classic, West Side Story. We sat down with student participants as well as Kathryn (Kate) Edwards, who led a team of 82 students; actors, designers, dance choreographers, musicians, back-stage crew, who put in hundreds of man hours for three nights of performances, to learn more about their sentiments behind the scenes.
Tanglin recently won the Outstanding Environmental Project Award at the School Green Awards 2022. We sat down with Year 13 student, Isabel D, who championed the most recent Eco Week, to find out more about what drives her and how we can be inspired to do our part to protect Mother Earth.
TMUN is in session! What was the theme this year and what did our students debate about? Adam Cotton, Academic Enrichment Coordinator, tells us more.
