Senior School

Tanglin's Senior School prides itself on the individual care, guidance and counselling offered by our robust pastoral structure, the exceptional academic achievements of our students, and the development of skills and attributes through experiences beyond the classroom.

Every student is nurtured and cared for to ensure they are happy and balanced, and enjoy and maximise their time here. We aim to ensure achieving potential is the norm and exceeding expectations commonplace with an understanding that good learning can happen through character, academics and service education.

Tanglin accepts students from our own Junior School and is also open to applications into Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8, and 9), Key stage 4 (Years 10 and 11) and our Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13), although entry into Year 11 and Year 13 is unusual and generally not recommended.

As our students work towards Year 9, they are guided towards making choices for (I)GCSE courses with external examinations normally taken at the end of Year 11. Students then have the opportunity to select either the A Level or IB pathway in Years 12 and 13. This choice of dual pathway is unique in Singapore schools.

All of our subjects and courses are taught and supported by highly qualified and experienced professionals using excellent resources in world class facilities.

As well as course specifications, students also develop transferable learning skills and refined attitudes to learning to ensure they are organised, resilient, can work both independently and collaboratively, have opportunities to be creative, and thrive on working outside of their comfort zones.

Tanglin produces outstanding citizens who can make responsible and informed choices; have developed strategies and reserves to cope and face challenges with determination; contribute positively to an ever-changing and challenging world; show tolerance, patience and understanding towards others; and demonstrate clearly defined values, a diligent work ethic and leadership attributes.
