Punggol Secondary School (abbreviation: PSS; Simplified Chinese: 培道中学) is a secondary school located in Punggol, in the north-eastern part of Singapore.

In 2001, the campus was relocated to Punggol New Town (Punggol 21) from Toa Payoh. Pei Dao Secondary School was being renamed to Punggol Secondary School when it was relocated. However the school retained its Chinese name because of its strong emphasis on character development of pupils.

History as Pei Dao Secondary School (1957 - 2001)[edit]

The school started in 1957 as a Chinese school with six classrooms in an old residential building in Oxley Road. It was then known as Singapore Girls' Vocational High School.

In 1976 the school was re-sited to Toa Payoh East and renamed Pei Dao Secondary School. This new building, costing 4 million dollars, was fully sponsored by private businessmen and organisations.

In 1978, the school took in English stream classes and became co-educational.

In 1986, the school relinquished its aided school status and became a government school.
