CHIJ Saint Nicholas Girls' School (referred to as "SNGS", "SNG" or "St Nick's") is an all-girls' Catholic primary and secondary school in Ang Mo Kio. The school is one of 11 Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (CHIJ) schools in Singapore. SNGS has led the group of IJ schools with excellent results in sporting and academic achievements. The school was founded in 1933 by Father Nicholas Barre, originally as a Chinese school. Today, SNGS is one of the premier educational institutes in Singapore, ranking third in the list of top secondary girls' schools, and among the top 10 secondary schools in Singapore.

There is generally affiliation for the students of the primary division during their Primary School Leaving Examination. In this system of affiliation, which is also practiced in other schools, the students need to score less points in the PSLE to be accepted into their affiliate school, or in this case, the secondary sector of SNGS. SNGS is also affiliated with Catholic Junior College along with the other CHIJ schools.
