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”.
Both the timetable and route are revised on Service 829 which runs between Rugeley, Springhills Road, Rugeley, Rugeley Bus Station, Brereton, Armitage, Handsacre, Hanch, Friary and Nether Stowe School – on school days will terminate at Nether Stowe.

Setting a deliberate fire can cause devastating consequences:
Deliberate grass and bin fires take up a large amount of Firefighters’ time from Easter through to September. On average they attend 412 deliberate grass and bin fires during the Easter and summer holidays. In addition to this, damage caused by these fires can cost up to £8 million per year. Crews could be putting out these avoidable grass and bin fires when they should be helping someone whose life maybe in danger at a house fire or road traffic ccollision.
