Most of the students are now going on to university or high quality apprenticeships that will lead to long lasting careers"
Tara Best who is now going to Manchester to read Chemistry was overjoyed with her results, achieving 3 A grades said “I am very pleased with these results. My hard work has paid off.

Nether Stowe is also celebrating the achievement of Sophie Capewell, a year 12 student who is on the British Cycling training programme. This frequently takes her around the world competing at an international level. In addition to winning 2 bronze medals in the European Championships in the sprint and time trial, she is also a triple national champion in sprint, Keirin and the 500m time trial. Sophie gained 4 A grades at AS. After the success of the cycling team in Rio, Sophie is hopeful of a place in the team in the future. Sophie commented “I am exceedingly happy. I really didn’t think this would happen as it is really tricky to manage work and training. I have to be super organised. The staff at Nether Stowe have been a massive help. I couldn’t do this without the understanding of the teachers and their help and support”. Mr Capewell added, “Nether Stowe School have always treated Sophie as an individual and been very flexible to allow her to manage intensive training and school work”.
