Sembawang’s housing complex began to grow in the late 1990s. Sembawang Secondary School was founded in January 1999 to address community requirements. The pioneering batch of Secondary one pupils and school employees were temporarily accommodated in Woodlands Ring Secondary School while the development of the new premises was underway. Education Minister Tony Tan officially declared the school open on August 25, 2001. In 2008, the Sembawang Secondary School celebrated its tenth anniversary, and Sembawang GRC Member of Parliament Lim Wee Kiak assisted in unveiling a memorial sculpture in the foyer.
