SPA Update July 2014


SPA at Henley Royal Regatta was the perfect end to a fantastic year for SPA which has included SPA’s first trip abroad with our Battlefields trip as well as pub tours, lectures, garden walks, literary festivals, rugby matches, shopping days, wine tasting, lunches and art galleries to name but a few of the events we have undertaken.

We are delighted to see increasing numbers of parents attending our events and, even more importantly, enjoying meeting new acquaintances in unique locations. It is SPA's intention to help parents make the best of thier "Stowe experience" and find enjoyable ways to reach out to other parents within the school whilst enjoying events that may not otherwise be accessible. Our parents have enjoyed and contributed to a fantastic range of events so thank you to all who have engaged with us and, hopefully, been entertained by what we’ve put on for you!

Looking towards next year, below lists our events for the Michaelmas Term 2014 and our trip to Silverstone to see the British Touring Cars Championship is already almost full so please do email us at to reserve any tickets that you would like.

Journey Breakers

SPA provides 'Journey Breaker' refreshments in the Marble Hall at Exeat and Half Term pick up times. It's not just an opportunity to catch your breath before your return journey or after parent meetings, but also a chance to meet up with other parents. Do pop in and find out what is going on!

Have Your Say!

We are always delighted to meet new parents and already have some exiting events being planned for Lent and Summer 2015 but we are equally open to new ideas.


If you have any thoughts or suggestions, have contacts or links with places and events of interest, or are able to help and support these or other events, then please do make contact with us at or speak to any one of us.


All parents are warmly invited to be involved and attend any or all SPA meetings. The main purpose of these is to consider and plan future events. Meetings usually coincide with Exeats and other pick up points. Please contact us if you would like further details.
