Noordwyk Secondary School started operating on the 10th of January 2011 at the Midrand Primary School hall, with just Grades 8 and 9. Our interim principal being Mr. Lephalale at the time. We were chased out because they said that our learners were making a noise. We then moved to Randjiesfontein City Park Depot, and we were also chased away because the kids were naughty, killing the hares and chickens on the property.

In April of 2011 we moved to Noordwyk Containers, and our principal became Mr. Leonard Mckay. In 2012, the Gauteng Department of Education appointed our first HOD for Maths and Sciences, Ms. MJ Motloutsi. In September 2013, the Department of Education appointed Mr. Kinsley as the Deputy Principal and in July of 2013, we were joined by Mrs. Chetty who became our Languages and Life Orientation HOD, soon after Mrs. Mtshweni who was our Commercial Subjects HOD. Unfortunately, our Principal Mr. Leonard McKay abandoned us on the 7th of February 2014.

The new school was officially opened by the Gauteng Premier, Ms. Nomvula Mokonyane on the 13th of March 2014. In July of 2014, Mr. Leso came to Noordwyk Secondary to put things into place as our Principal. In September of 2014, Mr. Tau AM was appointed to be the new Principal of Noordwyk Secondary School but he officially joined the school in January of 2015.

Currently, as of 2022, we have one thousand five hundred and thirty two (1532) learners and we are still growing. We have built numerous classrooms and Mr. Tau is constantly looking for ways of improving safety, growth and extra-curricular activities in our school. We have recently launched our new website in the hopes that it will unblock channels of communication between school, parents and other stakeholders. To aid, we have also launched the use of the d6 Connect Communication system in 2019.

From where we stand, we are growing as Noordwyk Secondary School and with your support combined with the support of our fifty-two (52) educators, the school will reach new heights and establish the name it deserves as one of the best in the Johannesburg East District.
