School History[edit]

Thomson Government Chinese Middle School[edit]

The school started as Thomson Government Chinese Middle School in 1956, as one of the Government Chinese Middle Schools set up to cater to Chinese school students who had their studies disrupted by the Chinese middle schools riots. It later merged with Thomson Vocational School to become Thomson Secondary School.

North Vista Secondary School[edit]

On 15 December 2000, the campus was relocated to Sengkang New Town. Thomson Secondary School was renamed as North Vista Secondary School after the relocation. However, the school retained its Chinese name to preserve historical links with the new school.

2016 marked the school's Golden Jubilee.

The School has been under the leadership of 2 Principals:

  1. Mr Lim Lai Chuan (2001-2012)
  2. Mrs Regina Lee (2013 to Present)
