Main Campus Since 1996


29 July was an important day in the school’s history. It was the day of the official signing of the building contract to construct the new campus on Linden Drive, formerly the site of National Junior College. On the same day, the ground-breaking ceremony took place.

Piling works at our Linden Drive campus


The new school campus at Linden Drive would be three to four times larger than the old King's Road campus, comprising nine blocks in total, with wide pavements linking the blocks. It would take up 3.64 hectares, 1.24 hectares larger than the existing one. At the same time, the girls' boarding school would be built opposite the school. Nanyang Girls' High School would be the first all girls secondary school to have a boarding school.

Administration Block, Library Block, Siew May Auditorium, Music Block, Science Block, Classroom Block, Aesthetics Block, Ai Li Hall and Extra-curricular Activities Block.
On 18 February, the new school campus finally stood proudly along Dunearn Road. Its architectural design, grandeur and splendour won the admiration and praise of onlookers and became a new landmark in Bukit Timah.


The move to the new school campus took place with a symbolic Big Walk to the new school on 6 June 1999.

At the flag off by First Lady Mdm Ling Siew May, the contingent left the King’s Road campus. This was followed by the first flag-raising ceremony at the new school campus

The official opening ceremony of the school was held on 26 August 2000.

Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew was the Guest of Honour at the opening ceremony of the Linden Drive campus. Minister for Education Mr Teo Chee Hean was also present at the event.

Architectural Highlights

The main campus designed by our late first lady Mdm Ling Siew May continues to impress visitors to this day with the use of symmetry, columns, arches, high ceilings, open spaces and numerous small architectural details.

Common Spaces

The Ai Li Hall (right), a truly multi-use facility. The only indoor venue capable of holding the entire school population, the hall has been the venue for many concerts, graduation ceremonies, weekly assemblies and sporting events as well as being the major exam venue.

Siew May Auditorium

The Siew May Auditorium, capable of seating almost 500, makes an ideal setting for level assemblies, Parent-Teacher-Meeting sessions and has showcased many theatrical performances over the years.

Learning Spaces

The Yu Zhi Library (right) is generously spread over three floors. The library is not only about books. The large open area on the lower level of the library gives the library a light, airy feel.

Top floor of Yu Zhi Library

The upper-most floor of the library, originally the Media Resource Viewing Room and Media Resource Office of the library, was renovated at the end of 2006 into Special Rooms with a central area ideal for project work.

Living Spaces


Broad corridors in front of the classrooms, reminiscent of 5 foot walkways in front of shophouses, enable students to walk between venues keeping out of the sun or rain.

Hydroponic garden at the roof top

Roof spaces are not put to waste. Many batches of students have grown vegtables in the hydroponics garden or visited the spice garden.
