Our school’s ethos is based on Christian beliefs, values and practices. We also recognise and respect other faith groups and the beliefs of all members of our school community.
Our purpose is to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to live fulfilling lives and make a positive contribution to society.
Our students are valued as unique individuals, each with their own talents and skills. They are encouraged to have high aspirations, work hard, be creative and self-motivated and enjoy their learning.
Above all, they are challenged to reach their potential in all aspects of school life.
“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
