Tanglin Trust School, abbreviated as TTS, is a private, co-educational, international school situated on Portsdown Road, Singapore. TTS is the second-oldest international school in Singapore.

It was established in 1925 with only 25 students and soon began to grow exponentially. The school now has an enrolment of approximately 2,720 students from 54 nationalities.

However, as in all international schools in Singapore, only a limited number of Singaporean students are allowed to attend this school.

That said, the majority of students in TTS are British nationals—in other words, pupils with British passports make up a large proportion of TTS’s students.

So, you’d be forgiven to refer to the school as a British school. TTS is indeed British by curriculum; however, holding a British passport isn’t a prerequisite to gaining admission.

With that said, admission to TTS is purely based on two criteria. Firstly, the student must possess some level of English proficiency. Secondly, prospective students whose siblings are already attending the school and children of staff are that given priority.
