Beatty Secondary School is a co-educational neighbourhood secondary school in Toa Payoh, Singapore. It was established in 1953 and named for David Beatty, 1st Earl Beatty, former Admiral of the Fleet of the United Kingdom. The school colours, crest, and motto, Non Vi Sed Arte, are taken from Beatty's coat of arms. The graduated cohort of 2008 presented the school with the best overall results in the GCE 'O' Level examinations throughout the school's 55 years of history. Average L1B5 value stands at 18, making it a Band 9 school.
In 2016, due to a lack of Secondary One students, Beatty Secondary School had been selected to merge with Balestier Hill Secondary School. This process was made in ease with the integration of Beatty's students and of Balestier Hill's students nearing the end of 2016. At the start of 2017, the school would finally be merged as one.
Interviewed on Channel NewsAsia in February 2007, in a discussion on school upgrading, principal Boo Hian Kok expressed the view that schools should continue to ask for better facilities, provided they are able to justify their requests and prove they will benefit the students and teachers.
