Siglap Secondary School (SSS) was a government co-educational neighbourhood secondary school in Pasir Ris. Siglap Secondary was Singapore's first co-educational secondary school and it was also among one of the first schools in Singapore to offer Malay-medium secondary classes.[1] The school was founded in 1955 and shifted from its original location of Cheviot Hill in Siglap to its current location of Pasir Ris in the eastern part of Singapore.

Siglap Secondary school moved from its old campus at Siglap Road to its new premises at Pasir Ris in 2000. The newer campus included upgraded facilities to hold more classes in a morning session and became a single-session school that same year. The Principal was Mr Loo Joo Hong. The Vice-Principals were Mr Shawn Lim, Mr Mohd Azman and Mdm Mary Yap.

The nearest MRT station is Pasir Ris.

The school merged with Coral Secondary School to form Meridian Secondary School in 2017.
