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.

On Thursday 10th November 2016 I organised a charity night raising money for The Guide Dogs charity, the charity supported by Willow House one of the four Houses in Lowton C of E High School.

The night included bands, singers, raffles, auctions and donated refreshments. Included in the auction was a Wigan warrior’s game shirt, this was signed by player Willie Isa, who visited school on the day of the event.

Over the last year our house charity aimed to raise £2500 for the guide dogs. With this target reached we had the opportunity to name and sponsor a guide dog puppy. After numerous assemblies about how we could raise the target for the charity I came up with the idea of the charity night.

With help from my head of house Ms Busek, one of the student support managers Mrs Jordan and my best friend Fenwick Carr we set the charity night up.

We asked local businesses and sports clubs to donate to the event. The Wigan Warriors shirt raised £100 during an on the spot auction. We asked teachers and students to sing or perform as a band at the event – even securing the support of ex pupils. There was also a well stocked raffle, with prices including: a Wigan Athletic signed ball; a teddy bear donated by Bents Garden Centre; a Slimming World 6 week countdown provided by the Lowton and Pennington club, which held in the school; and 4 meals at The Talbot pub in Atherton, amongst others. This helped us push our total on the night to over £550, enough to name our puppy “Willow”. Willow is due to be born very soon and when they arrive we will continue to raise money for them and the centre. As we had exceeded the £2500 target we have also raised enough to buy some much needed toys for the Atherton Guide Dog Centre. A group of pupils will be taking a trip over and delivering these very soon.

As the night concluded I was happy to get a good night’s sleep without worrying about anything that needed doing. The night was a definite success and I want to thank everyone that helped or donated and attended the event.

Ms Busek, Head of House, said, “I am so incredibly proud of all of the pupils in the house, especially when they go above and beyond our already high standards. What Paul did exceeded every expectation. He is an inspiration to others and I am so pleased to have him in my house. Others, in younger years, are now coming to me with excellent ideas. Each wants to help in any way they can. A lot can come from getting involved in charity and I am sure that pupils will continue this throughout their time here and as they leave Lowton C of E High School. The night was a fantastic success and I had great fun helping Paul to host it. It makes me very proud of him, our pupils and this school.”

In the run up to Christmas, our year seven students are taking part in Book Bingo. Each student has been given a Bingo grid and they must complete the reading tasks in the squares to collect them. If they make a line by collecting three squares, they will win a prize. If they collect all the squares to make a full house, they will be invited to an extra special event at the end of term.

Last week, Rayyan Shah in Oak and Kiera Lawrinson in Elm, were the first to collect three squares to make a line. Miss Lyons, the school librarian, is hoping to see lots more Bingo lines completed in the next couple of weeks, so that she can continue giving out prizes!
