A teenage girl had been arrested on suspicion of GBH after a 16-year-old boy was stabbed outside Teddington School.
The teenager suffered injuries to his hip and hand in the incident outside the front entrance in Broom Road at lunchtime on Tuesday.
Police officers were called to the scene at 12.31pm to reports of a stabbing.
A spokesman said: "Officers responded and found a 16-year-old boy with non-life threatening injuries.
"A 16-year-old girl was later arrested on suspicion of GBH and taken into custody. She was later released on bail."
In a letter sent to the families of pupils earlier this week the headteacher, Kathy Pacey, reassured everyone that students were safe.
She also said support was available for any student that needs it, from the school and its Trust' s pastoral teams.
The Bourne Education Trust and Teddington School say they are working closely with emergency services and the local education authority, following the incident.
