Nobel School was founded in 1961 as a Technical Grammar School, and was originally in temporary accommodation at the Girls’ Grammar School site in Six Hills Way. It became Nobel School in 1963 in Telford Avenue, where it remained until it merged with Chells School and moved to the Mobbsbury Way site in 1983.
The former Telford Avenue site was used from 1983 as Ridgemond Training Centre, set up with grants from the Council and British Aerospace to help young unemployed people to train for employment. The centre was demolished and a new housing development was built there in 2006.
