“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
Headteacher

Lessons in the Limelight - PE with Miss HillYear 11 GCSE PE students have been studying the Sports Psychology unit. Within this unit we looked at the four different types of guidance used to help a performer to learn a new skill.To analyse the effectiveness of two of the types of guidance we put them to the test. Partner 1 had to face away from the board whilst attempting to draw a picture that was only visible to Partner 2. Partner 2 had to use the types of guidance we had learnt about to get their partner to produce the best drawing in the class. Firstly, students could only use verbal guidance and describe the photo of the sandcastle. Next up was visual guidance where students could redraw and then show the photo of the dog - no talking was allowed!Finally, students could use visual and verbal guidance together to recreate the burger and chips. The students came to the conclusion that, whilst some of the drawing skills were questionable, the best outcome came from the use of visual and verbal guidance combined. ... See MoreSee Less

Lessons in the Limelight - PE with Miss HillYear 7 have been looking at the different tests used to measure the ten components of fitness. Across three lessons the students took part in tests such as the 30m sprint, the ruler drop test and the sit and reach test to measure components like speed, reaction time and flexibility. After completing each test and comparing their scores, the students had to match the component of fitness to the relevant test. At the end of the lesson there was an impressive whole class discussion where students discussed which sports people would need these components to be successful during performance. ...
