We hail our dear school in the ascendant
Fount of valiant boys and virtuous girls bound by vision of a brighter tomorrow.
In bonds of friendship, discipline and effort, pure hearts of noble spirits, yielding inspiring works and great deeds.
Oh Lord, keep our patharight and our bound forever strong
In life’s labour we shall never give up
Until victory’s certain guided by our eternal creed
To serve God faithfully, to live life cheerfully, to learn wholesomely
We vow to strive without ceasing
To excel and to recreate our world
So sing a blissful song and lift our banner high
Lift our banner high
Higher and highest.

I pledge on my honour in words, deeds and in truth, to show kindness to my fellow students and to uphold the spirit of friendship in school. To obey without question, schools rules and regulations, to be guided by the cardinal virtues of scholarship and to strive at all times to meet the school goals of excellence and distinction in all I do. To bring honour and glory to myself, family and my dear school. So help me God.

The mission of the school is to be a first class secondary school providing a conducive learning environment for students to excel in academics, discipline and all human efforts.
The motto of the school: Hard work and discipline. The motto is the same in all the Nigerian Navy secondary schools.

NNSS Calabar is one of the Nigerian Navy Schools. Others are at Lagos, Abeokuta, Port-Harcourt, Ogbomoso and Imeri. The school was originally planned as a State Model Secondary School until it was handed over to the Nigerian Navy on 28th May 1999 by the government of Cross River State headed by Captain C. Osondu the military administrator. The school did not start that year due to logistics and financial challenges. Consequently, the school premises were left idlefor 6 years during which the facilities were degraded due to natural wear and tear as well as alleged vandalisation. In 2005, the Chief of the Naval Staff, Vice Admiral GTA Adekeye decided to start the school and appointed the pioneer commandant Captain A Kpou in October. Thereafter the facilities were renovated in preparation for the take-off and the school was commissioned on Friday 4 August 2006 by the Executive Governor of Cross River State Mr. Donald Duke. The school has grown now to a full-fledged one with students in JSS1 to SSS3 classes and a student population of about 1200. In terms of expansion and infrastructural development, the school has grown to that point which put it in good stead as a centre for education excellence

NNSS Calabar is a mixed full-boarding secondary school open to all Nigerian secondary school-aged children provided they pass the entrance examinations. We have students from all parts of the country. The school is an equal opportunity and multi-cultural institution that allows you to bring out the best in you, to make lasting friends and to learn from many others. Although the school is owned and run by the Nigerian Navy, it is public in nature and it is not a military school. We run the normal school curriculum in addition to Naval studies and parades to give the students a sense of discipline.

The school is located at Ikot Offiong Ambai village along the Calabar Ikang highway in Akpabuyo LGA of Cross River State. It is about 15km from UJ Esuene Stadium in Calabar City Centre. The compound is 500m from the highway opposite the Nigerian Police Secondary School. The school has an area measuring about 54 hectares.
