“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.

On behalf of the governors and staff, welcome to Lowton.

Welcome to Lowton Church of England High School, a community where we are passionate about equipping young people to make a positive difference in the world. As a relatively small school we are confident that we know our students well and offer a high standard of personalised pastoral care.

We deliver a broad curriculum that aims to promote a love of learning. We take pride in having high expectations of our students so they are able to reach their academic potential. We believe that students thrive when they are challenged to do their best and we celebrate their achievements.

The school joined the family of Church of England schools in 2012. We have developed a strong Christian ethos that is committed to being inclusive, caring and places serving others at the heart of everything we do. We work very closely with our local churches and employ a Chaplain who plays an integral role in school life. Please look at our Chaplaincy page to discover more about how our faith makes a positive difference to school life.

To learn more about the life of our school we invite you to explore our Facebook page, where we share daily updates about life in our school, read our website and visit us where you will be welcomed by friendly staff and polite students.

Mr Kieran Larkin

The 'Instituto de Educación Secundaria Huelín' in Málaga, Spain and Lowton Church of England High School have been collaborating for the last three years. This has involved a teacher job shadow project in 2019 and also letter writing activities between the children in both schools. To celebrate the International Day of Languages and as part of the 'Global Citizenship' strand of Eco Schools, we have linked up with them and other schools to participate in a literacy based project. Some children and staff read out the opening paragraph from the very famous Spanish novel of Don Quixote written by Miguel de Cervantes in their own mother tongue. We are very fortunate to be one of a small number of schools to have received the International School Award last year for our International work in many areas. We look forward to working closely with our international partners again in the coming months. youtu.be/hXqV03MfoXY ... See MoreSee Less

Our Year 7 forms have been working hard on creating their achievement boards. The boards, which will be used to track each student's achievement points, were today judged to see which one was the most creative.With fantastic themes such as a thermometer, a butterfly effect, airplane skydiving and a tree resembling students growing on their Lowton journey, it was very difficult to award a winner!However, 7.1 edged the prize with their mission to the top of the volcano. Each member of the form was responsible for completing part of the design at home, with Sam Ashworth creating the impressive volcano! ... See MoreSee Less

The year 7 boys football team had their first fixtures for the school last night and all boys contributed well to a successful evening of football. The boys got off to a winning start against Hindley and then were very unfortunate to lose 1-0 to Golborne. They couldn't break down cansfield and had to settle for a 0-0 draw before narrowly losing 1-0 to a very strong St Edmund Arrowsmith side. Although the results didn't quite fall as well as they could the performances bode well for the future. Although all boys should be credited for their performances special mentions go to Nathan Marsden who was almost unbeatable in goal, Ethan McKinstry and Tom Murphy who were strong in defence and Fin Hamer and Joe Hart who looked dangerous when on the attack. ...

Back in June, Year 8 students of Lowton Church of England High School were invited to come to a writing workshop and work with local poet as part of her “Street Dreams” Project with Historic England. A number of students took up the challenge and Louise and Ms Larkin were blown away by their creativity. This week Louise returned to work with some of the students again and on Wednesday evening, Katie, Josh, Reece and Tyler represented our school by sharing with other adult writers, parents and students from other schools some of the fantastic work the students had produced over both events. Louise said “The students were brilliant, imaginative and funny. I really enjoyed the imagery they created for the poems and the creepy characters they brought to life in their short story excerpts. It was a lovely, polite bunch of young people to work with.” A huge well done to all the students who were involved in any of the sessions! ... See MoreSee Less

Our Year 7/8 football team took part in the Wigan and Leigh School Games Football Festival this evening. They started the competition with a comprehensive 3-0 win with goals from Freya Kelly (2) and Gracie Lea before slipping to a narrow defeat to eventual tournament winners Standish High. The girls controlled the game against Cansfield, with three unbelievable saves the only thing denying them of all three points. After falling behind by two goals early in the final game, the team showed great character to produce two goals converted by Rhianna Bowen to draw level. They were knocking on the door throughout the second half but couldn't find a winner before the final whistle.A fantastic night with a third placed finish and great performances all around from Raeaa Warmington, Mia Hayes, Mia Olondo-Yates, Olivia Clarke, Hannah Reynolds, Hanna Kawka and the three students already named. Well done, girls! ... See MoreSee Less

The year 9 football team went to St Edmund Arrowsmith for the first part of their league. They opened up with a good draw against a strong St Edmund Arrowsmith side. This was followed up with a hard fought win against Hindley 3-2. The boys then seemed to tire and were narrowly beaten by Fred Longworth and despite spells of pressure could not sneak the win having to settle for a 0-0 against Cansfield. Special mentions to Benjamin Koomson and Jack Corbett whose pace worried the opposition defences. Ryan Bayona and Leyton Berry bossed the midfield and behind them Claudio Palmer Portugal and Ali Hodkinson kept a tight defence and when they were beaten Charlie Riley made some smart saves. Out wide Matt Calland defended well and showed great distribution and Noel Gardener, Ethan Mcliughlin Josh Hayes, Nikolay Karacholev and Ege Agbosolu worked hard to protect the defence and help in attack. A great effort from the boys which after today’s results still gives them a chance of topping the league. ... See MoreSee Less

Our Year 7 and Year 8 netball teams both played their first ever fixture at Cansfield this evening.Both teams have only been playing together for a few weeks and enjoyed representing the school for the first time. After a cagey start our Year 7 team settled into the game and dominated possession. Later in the game their patience was rewarded with the team running out as 4-0 winners. Millie Gotheridge was selected as player of the match.Our Year 8 team flew out the blocks in their game, with a couple of early goals settling their nerves. A near perfect performance resulted in a 10-1 win. Mia Olondo-Yates was selected as player of the match.After two great debut games, we're now very excited to watch the teams progress further over the next few weeks. Well done to everyone involved! ... See MoreSee Less

Our Year 9 and 10 netball teams had their first fixtures in over 18 months yesterday evening as we visited Cansfield High School. Within minutes on the court it was like we had never been away, with the teams clicking to secure 12-0 and 13-2 wins respectively. The girls enjoyed representing school as a team again and it was great to hear them cheering on their fellow Lowton team from the sidelines whilst spectating. Next week our newly formed Year 7 and 8 teams will also take on Cansfield. They are all looking forward to their first fixture. ... See MoreSee Less

Last night three of our Year 9 students did a fantastic job helping out at the Year 5/6 TAG Rugby League development festival. Ali Hodkinson, Noel Gardner and Leyton Berry led students from Leigh St John's Infant School and Leigh Sacred Heart through several activities before umpiring some tag rugby games. They made a real positive difference to the event, which was designed to allow children to develop and learn new sports skills. From start to finish they made sure the primary school students had a memorable time and created an enjoyable place for them to be physically active and develop new skills. They proved to be great role models and advocates for the school, the school games programme, school sport and its power to create positive experiences of physical activity for young people. Well done, boys 👏 ... See MoreSee Less
