After a thorough and extensive global search, the Board of Governors has appointed Craig Considine as CEO of Tanglin Trust School from August 2018.
Craig is currently Headmaster of Millfield which is one of the leading co-educational independent schools in the UK.

Craig has been Headmaster for the past 9 years, and has made a number of significant changes to enhance the school's excellent academic, pastoral and co-curricular provision.
Prior to joining Millfield, Craig was Headmaster at Wanganui Collegiate School, a co-educational, independent boarding and day school in New Zealand. This followed experience in a number of Australian independent schools including Geelong Grammar School where he was a member of the executive team. Craig also represented Australia at the Commonwealth Games in the decathlon and played professional AFL football, pointing to his passion for sport and its importance in young people's lives.
Craig has a Master's Degree in Education from Charles Sturt University, a Diploma of Education from Melbourne University and a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Science from RMIT. He has a strong belief in the importance of wellbeing as the cornerstone of each pupil flourishing and achieving his or her potential. His extensive experience in boarding and day schools, particularly in the UK, provide a platform for him to support and lead the people and processes that create our unique Tanglin Trust School.
