History of the site

Nether Stowe began life as the online home of the Science Department at Nether Stowe School in Lichfield, Staffordshire. Over the course of two years, a variety of resources were added to the site to support Science students at the school.

In April 2004, I moved to a position at Wolverhampton City Learning Centre. The site was relaunched in January 2005, and now accepts revision materials and student work from science teachers and students across the UK.

CLC websiteUnless otherwise credited, materials on the site were created by me during my time at Nether Stowe. Once other schools have contributed materials, the names of the schools and staff will be listed here and on the pages they have contributed.
