School Services


Tanglin is located on Portsdown Road, approximately 15 minutes drive to the west of Singapore's city centre and is easily accessible from the main residential areas of the island.

Our students get to and from school in a number of different ways; some are dropped off by parents, some travel by MRT (One North is the nearest station a five minute walk away), and many use the popular door-to-door school bus service. Buses in the afternoon leave at various times, usually within 10 to 15 minutes of dismissal times.

Activity buses cater to students participating in the school's co-curricular activities (CCAs).

Families new to Tanglin who would like their children to travel to school by bus should ensure they send in a Transport Request Form to the Transport Office as soon as possible and no later than four weeks before the start of a new term.
