TANGLIN TRUST SCHOOL LAUNCHES T90 (ITS 90TH ANNIVERSARY)


On Thursday 15 January, a representative from ITS Educational Services had the pleasure of attending the Tanglin Trust 90th anniversary celebrations.

 

Almost 300 VIP guests attended the event, at which there were musical performances by students and presentations by Josie Tulipano, General Manager of The Tanglin Club; Peter Derby-Crook, Tanglin CEO; and British High Commissioner, Antony Phillipson. Chair of the Board of Governors, Dominic Nixon, also made a toast. Peter Derby-Crook presented thank you gifts to The Tanglin Club and JTC, its former and current landlords.



TTSPeter Derby-Crook comments on T90, “I feel very proud to be CEO of Tanglin Trust School, and never more than in our 90th year.  Tanglin is a very special learning environment and community. I am amazed on a daily basis by the dedication and energy of our staff and their commitment to providing the most inspiring, exciting, memorable learning for our students. The care and support that goes into ensuring every child has the opportunity to achieve, whatever their strength or talent, I believe sets us apart. I am also extremely proud of our students who are bright, hardworking, confident and articulate but also balanced, caring and principled. The vision of Tanglin is not just to deliver outstanding academic attainment but to nurture a community of learners who will go out and contribute with confidence to our world.”

TTS2His Excellence Antony Phillipson spoke in his formal capacity as HE British High Commissioner but also as a parent of three children in the school. He highlighted the importance of good British Education abroad - something he had benefited from himself - and commended Tanglin on being an exemplary model of this.
Tanglin Trust School is committed to ensuring its continued relevance and sustainability so that it remains vital to Singapore and at the heart of the community it serves. Throughout Tanglin’s 90th year, it intends to reach out and develop new and deeper connections with Singapore and in particular with its local neighbours in One North.

 

TTS3About Tanglin Trust School

Tanglin Trust School Singapore has a long tradition of providing British-based learning with an international perspective. The school was established by Anne Griffith-Jones OBE in 1925, in an attap hut in the grounds of The Tanglin Club. 
Today, Tanglin is one community spread across three schools; InfantJunior and Senior, which includes the Sixth Form College. There are currently approximately 2,700 students at Tanglin with 740 in the Infant School, 770 in the Junior School and 1190 in the Senior School and Sixth Form. Each school has its own building and facilities within the one campus.

Students in each school wear a slightly different uniform and each school is overseen by a separate Head Teacher who specialises in the relevant student ages and developmental stages. These three Head Teachers report directly to Tanglin's Chief Executive Officer, working closely together as a team to ensure a cohesive and integrated whole school ethos.

Infant School students are aged between 3 and 7 and the curriculum they follow is the Early Years Foundation Stage in Nursery and Reception followed by Key Stage 1 in Years 1 and 2. Students in our Junior School, aged between 7 and 11, follow Key Stage 2 in Years 3 to 6. Students in the Senior School, including those in the Sixth Form, are aged 11 to 18 years. They study Key Stages 3 in Years 7 to 9; Key Stage 4 in Years 10 and 11; and Key Stage 5 in Years 12 and 13.
