Thursday 20th August saw Lowton Church of England High School open their doors wide in order to welcome back Year 11s. Observing clear safety guidelines students were able to collect their results, receive the congratulations they truly deserve for an outstanding set of GCSE results and receive support for future plans.
Students were last in school on 20th March, an eventful day for all students across the nation. On this day our students celebrated the end of their Lowton journey by enjoying a hastily arranged, but fantastic impromptu prom. This was followed by an emotional march of honour as they were clapped by the whole of the school as they left school as Year 11 students for the very last time. This was an emotional day for staff and students alike but one that will be cherished as a special memory for years to come by all!
This is an exceptional group of students who have flourished in their 5 years as part of the Lowton family. They leave behind a legacy of not just academic success but of success in many areas: talented artists and photographers; gifted musicians and actors; accomplished athletes, both in and out of school; marvellous ambassadors and worthy role models. They are, without doubt, a tough act to follow.
Despite being denied the opportunity to sit their final examinations the GCSE examination grades these students have received are a true reflection of their hard work, ability and commitment. Not only have a number of students achieved 9s across the board but so many have exceeded expectations. Mock examination results throughout the GCSE course showed how determined these young people were to succeed, which they did! This is a result of the strong partnership between students, staff and parents that exists at Lowton. It is a school invested fully in helping its young people flourish so that they are thoroughly ready for the next stage of their life.
