Dear parents and students,
It is a great privilege to be the Head of this lovely school and I am delighted that you are considering Nobel for your child’s secondary education. At Nobel we care about everyone in our community and believe that by emphasising the fundamentals of good behaviour and attendance and through high quality teaching and learning, we can all achieve to the very best of our ability.
Studying at Nobel is an enjoyable and positive experience. Our guiding principle in designing the curriculum is the achievement of ALL our students. First and foremost, it is essential that students master core academic subjects. The curriculum in years 7-9 centres on the essential academic subjects including maths, English, sciences, the humanities and languages. At the same time, with first class arts, physical education and technological facilities, Nobel encourages students to expand their horizons, develop a wide range of skills and talents and to have fun.
Our burgeoning Sixth Form takes a very strong lead in setting a good example to younger students both in terms of behaviour and work ethic. Our senior students play a significant role in supporting and leading the rest of the school. Relationships at all levels are outstanding and we work hard to ensure that both students and parents are fully engaged with the learning and the activities taking place.
We have superb sports facilities that include a large sports hall, a gymnasium, a fitness suite, a dance studio, AstroTurf, climbing wall, a multi-use games areas and the trim trail. In addition to these new facilities, we have outstanding resources in all other areas and one of the most generously resourced ICT facilities of any school. For students interested in science and technology the facilities at Nobel are unparalleled.
In February 2018 Ofsted judged Nobel to be a ‘good’ school, we now intend working towards ‘outstanding’ for our next inspection..
When you join the school you become a Nobelian for life; we will commit to develop the qualities of hard work, friendliness and good character which have always been part of Nobel, and turn them into even greater successes in the future. We work tirelessly to ensure that every Nobelian is supported and stretched to reach their full potential, so that they can lead happy and fulfilling lives.
I look forward to welcoming you.
