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.

Yesterday was National Women in Engineering Day (NWED) 2016

“National Women in Engineering Day was set up by the Women’s Engineering Society in 2014 to celebrate their 95th anniversary, as a charity supporting women in engineering. Their aim was to raise the profile and celebrate the achievements of Women in Engineering, and encourage more girls to consider engineering as a career.”

Female Engineers from Sellafield came on site deliver an interactive session to around 50 Year 7 - Year 9 students, the session inspired some of our female students to study and build a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). The session entailed a quiz to show which helped our students identify personal competencies, then the female engineers talked about how these competencies could be useful in all sorts of jobs, but especially engineering. Finally there was an informal session where our students chatted with the engineers asking all sorts of questions about career paths. Students we also provided with a resource pack full of information about how females can get into engineering from Work Related Learning Secretary Mrs Harrison.

The feedback from our students ranged from:

"Awesome!"

What did you learn: "...that I can be whatever I want to be", "Girls can do anything in engineering" and "Engineering is not all about fixing cars".

What was the best thing: "...there were women engineers teaching us how to be engineers" and "...inspired that we can go into any job we want to when we are older".

Yesterday we took a variety of pupils from different year groups to The Lowry to see the The 39 Steps London & UK Tour. This is the set text we will be studying for the new Drama GCSE. It is a funny play with only four actors playing all the parts and there were lots of silly moments with deliberate mistakes and quick costume changes. Our next year's Year 10s will be learning scenes to perform as part of their study of the play and this has made an excellent launch and introduction to their GCSE.

For some Year 8 pupils, who will give up time after school next year as they have opted to take both a language and Drama, this has been a reward for their commitment to the subject. For some of them it was the first time at a theatre and they were amazed at the size of it.

Members of the public praised our pupils for their kind manners and behaviour.

Mrs Radford is looking into booking more theatre trips at The Lowry soon.
