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.

“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.

Our GCSE students have truly surpassed our expectations. They move on to the next stage in their lives’ journey ready to succeed, not only as a consequence of the record breaking results they have achieved, which were a significant improvement on last year’s examinations results, but because they leave us as wonderfully rounded, confident, independent members of our community.

Our successes:
- The attainment of ALL students: 70% achieved a standard pass in 5 GCSE subjects including English and mathematics [A* -C in old money]. A phenomenal 10% improvement from last year.
- Our boys: We worked seamlessly with our young men to overcome the traditional barriers boys face and bucked the national trend so that they met or exceeded their targets guaranteeing places in colleges and apprenticeships.
- Our Most Able Students: Our brightest students have again excelled securing multiple top grades, ensuring that all future doors are open to them.
- Our Disadvantaged Students: It gives us the utmost pleasure to report that we have more than halved the gap between our most vulnerable students and their peers.
- Option Subjects: Students performance in their chosen subjects has truly soared; whether that be Photography where a phenomenal third of students achieved a grade 9 [ the super A*] or History where the same proportion of our students achieved the highest grades.

These amazing successes have been achieved through the tireless work of all of our staff, whether that be teaching or non teaching staff; the dedication of our wonderful students and the fabulous support we have received from family.
