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.

Congratulations to Maddison Jones (9c) who has recently been made Senior Elite Captain at her dance school. To receive this title she had to work for over a year to prove that she was good enough to lead the team. She has also been successful in becoming the Ambassador for Lancashire Dance Festival, another achievement she had to work hard to achieve. Maddison recently walked away from their competition with a highest scoring duet trophy and several gold soloist medals.

All of this is even more impressive when you consider that Maddison dances 6 sometimes 7 days a week but always ensures that she works hard at school to make sure that she never misses any homework and to keep her grades up. Maddison has just chosen to give up her free time to keep both her education and her dream going to a high standard.

A big well done Maddison, what a fantastic role model! 🏆
