“Christian values of trust, compassion and respect are reflected in the good behaviour of the students”  SIAMS inspection


Welcome to Lowton Church of England High School, a small, successful comprehensive school serving young people aged 11-16 in the Lowton, Leigh and Atherton communities. As a Church school everything we do is based on Christian values and is summed up in our mission statement, caring, learning and succeeding.

We are a caring school which genuinely values the importance of each individual student. This means that we are an inclusive community which listens to what our students have to say and recognises their rights as well as their responsibilities. We are a small school and we know our students well.

We are a learning school that places huge importance on high quality learning and the development of good learning habits that promote “Life-Long Learning” amongst all of our students. We are fully committed to preparing students for their future education and working life by instilling these good habits from their first day with us, to when they leave us to continue their learning journey.

Finally, we are a school that supports our students in succeeding, both academically and in ways which reflect their own unique talents and abilities.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about “The Lowton Family”. If you want to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thankfully the weather stayed fine yesterday and our Oak House students and staff taking part in their Help for Heroes Official Marathon relay didn't get wet! They absolutely smashed it and have raised far more money than they expected (we'll bring you the final amount once it's all been counted!). A few of the participants had the following to say:

Mr Pollard, "Right, I'm off!" - after completing his part of the relay.
Jake - "The run was sound and fun"
Lennon - "My stitches are getting stitches!"

Unlike the other students, the army cadets ran in their uniform. Their fatigues and boots made it harder for them than for those in shorts and trainers.

Other students said the day was "fun" and "rewarding" and one students commented, "I'm not doing that again for another year!".

A massive congratulations to everyone that completed the challenge!
