Welcome to Careers, PSHE and Enrichment at Lowton High School
Our fully equipped careers room provides a wealth of information to all of our students and our dedicated school Careers Adviser as well as Careers Co-ordinator Mrs Harrison are available to help students – and parents – navigate their way through the many academic and vocational choices they will make during their time at Lowton and beyond.
The School is proud to hold Inspiring IAG bronze accreditation and is currently working towards the Gatsby Benchmarks. Inspiring IAG has been designed to provide a good practice framework and recognition of high quality careers education, information, advice and guidance for organisations that are providing support services for young people.
The careers element of our Lowton Values and Enrichment (LVE) curriculum and delivery support students throughout the school.
Our enrichment days strongly support students in many areas of careers education, information, advice and guidance and give them a wide range of experiences.
