A man has been arrested after a fight outside the Nobel School in Stevenage left a 14-year-old boy with head injuries.

Police and ambulance crews were called to the school in Mobbsbury Way shortly after 3pm.

The Comet understands the arrested man is the parent of another child at the school.

The teenager suffered head injuries and has been taken to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital where he is said to be in a stable condition.

Police are still at the school and are investigating the incident.

Update: Nobel headteacher Martyn Henson said: “I understand that this is a police matter and therefore it would be wrong to comment on the individual circumstances. We always encourage our students to conduct themselves as good Nobelians, and we think developing good character is vital.

“This incident, while taking place outside Nobel, did not involve any Nobel students. A general point, not with specific reference to yesterday’s incident, is that we all need as adults to model peaceful and co-operative behaviour. This is vital in a strong community.”
