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.

This morning we celebrated the successes of our students, forms and houses in our final whole school assembly of the year. We held two raffles per year group, one for no LEARN detentions and another for 100% attendance with the winners picking up a £50 voucher!

The winners of the 0 Learns for a whole year (September - July) vouchers were:
Yr 7 - Abigail Davies 7c2
Yr 8 - Keely Marshall 8e
Yr 9 - Tianah Kinta 9w
Yr 10 - Harry Redfrern 10o

The winners for 100% attendance (September - July) were:
Yr 7 - Ethan Butler 7c2
Yr 8 - Chloe Gotheridge 8e
Yr 9 - Eleanor Simpson 9c
Yr 10 - Sadie Houghton 10e

The form with the best attendance across the school was Mr McGuinness' 9 Elm.

In the assembly Mrs Jordan was recognised for her achievements in winning The Spirit of Manchester Award at The Pride of Manchester Ceremony on behalf of the victims of the terrorist attack that took place in Manchester. Mrs Jordan was presented with a 'Lowton Flame' badge from Mr Pollard.

In the house cups it was a close battle between Elm and Oak. Oak claimed the the achievement point cup whilst Elm picked up the attendance and charity trophies resulting in them being presented with the summer term's house trophy. In the overall house trophy for the full school year it was anyone's game, with all four head's of house lying nervously in wait for the all important result. In the end it was Oak's consistent performance across all categories throughout the year that saw them crowned overall house champions for 2018-19. Well done Oak house!

We wish all students a safe, happy and restful break and look forward to another school year in September!

Mr Doyle's 8 Oak enjoyed a game of 'Capture the Flag' with a twist in form time this afternoon to celebrate the end of the year. To stop someone from taking their teams flag students had to hit them with a water balloon! It was a very wet, fun-filled activity with all 400 balloons gone in a matter of seconds! ...
