“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
(Matthew 5:14-16 NIV) 

The Governors and staff of Lowton Church of England High School are committed to the provision of a high quality education in a Christian context. We aim to provide a school where we can live out our ethos of Caring, Learning and Succeeding on a daily basis and let our light shine. At the heart of the commitment is the notion of the uniqueness and infinite worth of the individual, that every person is valuable in the eyes of God and that they are, indeed, the light of the world.

Lessons in the Limelight - PSHE with Mrs Barker

Pupils in Year 9 PSHE lessons have been completing a unit of work on Health and Wellbeing. This week they have been looking at the reasons why people drink alcohol and the effects that alcohol can have on individuals and society. Lessons started with discussions and whiteboard activities on any plus, negative and interesting points about alcohol. Pupils then spent some of the lesson identifying why young people may drink focusing on the reason, feelings and risks. Some of the work produced in the 10 minute activity in books impressed Mrs Barker. Here we have some examples from Eva Marsden-Barnes (Photo 1), Prindi Bayona (Photo 2), Chloe Weaver (Photo 3), Zac Ryan (Photo 4) and Leighton Gibbons (Photo 5). In photo 6 from left to right starting at the top we have work from Freya Evans, Aaron Lord, Lexi Hill, Olivia Avery, Fletcher Pendlebury and Olivia Russell.
