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.

Year 9 – Skills for Further Study

Year 9 are currently working on skills and theory that will take them through into year 10 and 11. They have been producing written work that shows high level detail and understanding of complex Design and Technology concepts.

Some examples of these are issues based around the environment, new and emerging technologies, health and safety and design principles.

Shown in the photographs are some of our students working on their practical skills to extend their abilities when it comes to independent work. Students are encouraged to experiment and risk getting things wrong so that they can work on developing their skills to get it right next time. So far students have shown some excellent skills and potential.
