The Nobel School

The Nobel School is a thriving secondary school in Stevenage, Hertforsdhire. Our results are typically among the highest in Stevenage and we have an excellent reputation for teacher training, staff wellbeing and professional development.

We are the lead school in a partnership of primary and secondary schools in Stevenage and the surrounding areas, including Hitchin and Letchworth Garden City (primary).

We successfully recruit approximately 20 trainees each year across our partnership schools. Most of those trainees have had their first experience of teaching by visiting us for School Experience Programme days, when they get to observe lessons and talk to teachers about the day-to-day requirements of the professions.

Aspiring trainees are welcome to visit us to observe lessons in any subject area (subject to numbers), and we will always try to arrange visits to our partner schools so that you can see different schools in action.

You do not require a DBS check in advance of application, as you will be supervised at all times.
