Tanglin Trust School’s House system dates back to 1981 when Tanglin Preparatory School, Raeburn Park School and Weyhill Preparatory School merged to form Tanglin Infant and Junior schools on Portsdown Road.
Forty years on, the Tanglin House system has been unified across the Infant, Junior and Senior Schools and each of the House names – Claymore, Cameron, Raeburn, Alexandra, Weyhill, Wessex, Winchester and Portsdown – honours a significant location in the school’s rich history.
We wanted a school that Ella would really feel part of and where she would feel a true sense of belonging and kinship. Tanglin achieved this through the allocation of the House system, which will stay with them throughout their entire school life in Tanglin, from Infant School to Senior School. The school will also ensure Ella's little sister will have the same House allocation, so our family will forever be Team Cameron! We love how this connects the children of all ages, and on House Fridays, she can see her fellow House members walking around the school, whether they be in Nursery, or older years. – Hannah, Tanglin Parent
