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.

Samba Performance

During the first term, year 8 pupils look at the music of Samba from Brazil. Pupils learn about a style of samba called Samba Reggae which draws influence from the Caribbean as well as latin America. Pupils compose their own breaks and introductions and rehearse the piece until they are ready to perform. This example is one of the best in the year with excellent accuracy, confidence and also features some improvised solos. There's some real leadership skills from the girls in the group, too! Pupils involved: Billy-Joe Ogden, Peter Hodge-Hawkins, Holly Lumb, Keira Mayall and Abbie Ireland.
