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.

Well-done to Lowton's year 9 Junior Master Chef competitors!

Rosie Denney and Chloe Hooley were awarded 2nd place for their firecracker chicken main and cream cheese Danish with summer berries dessert.
Ben Wadsworth and Evan Dutton were awarded 3rd place for their chicken and chorizo ragu and chocolate caramel tart.

Both teams did themselves proud and were an absolute credit to the school. Their hard work really paid off and as their teacher I could not be any prouder! As part of their prize, they have been invited back to Warrington Vale and Royal College to participate in bread and pastry master classes, which is a fantastic bonus.

Congratulations Rosie, Chloe, Ben and Evan!
