Stowe School is a famous British independent school in Stowe, Buckinghamshire, referred to as a public school. It was founded on 11 May 1923 by JF Roxburgh, initially with 99 male pupils. It is a member of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference. The school is currently becoming co-educational. As of 2006, there are 493 boys in total, and 103 girls.

The school has been based since its beginnings at Stowe House, formerly the country seat of the Dukes of Buckingham and Chandos. Along with many of the other buildings on the school's estate, the main house is now a Grade 1 Listed Building and is maintained by the Stowe House Preservation Trust.

The school is used as a first class cricket ground by Northamptonshire CCC, and is the home ground of the Northants Second XI.

On 4 April 1963 The Beatles performed at Stowe School, for which they were paid ú100. They accepted a personal request from schoolboy David Moores, a fellow Liverpudlian. More recently, the school has hosted the Bootleg Beatles and the Beetles.

Some of those who have gone to school here are: Sir Richard Branson (Virgin), Roger Hodgson (ex Supertramp), Rainier III (Sovereign Prince of Monaco) and David Niven (Actor).
