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.

On Wednesday, years 7-10 had a lesson with their form tutor. During this session, the students were asked 'What does PROUD look like' in your books? They worked in groups to find examples of work they were proud of and to define our Lowton definition of P (pride in presentation) R (rules for book work followed) O (on task and tying hard) U (understood and acted on feedback) D (Done classwork & homework to an appropriate standard).

You can see how well your child is doing against the PROUD criteria for each subject on their progress review.
