Lowton CE High School is a Church of England secondary school that serves young people aged 11 – 16 years old within the neighbouring communities of Lowton, Leigh and Atherton. Situated just off the A580 between Manchester and Liverpool, the school is easily accessible by road from surrounding areas.
At Lowton, the whole school community sees itself as one big family with Christian values and vision at its heart, summed up by our mission statement: Caring, Learning and Succeeding.
Whilst there is much to celebrate at Lowton, nevertheless the school does face challenges. Indeed, June 2019 saw the school receive its fourth RI judgement - the latest of which highlighted the need for greater consistency across all areas.
Supported by a committed and capable Governing Body, this headship vacancy represents a great opportunity for the right person to bring clear-sighted realism to leadership in a Framework with a different emphasis.
As you can imagine, we are seeking a strong and empowering Headteacher with the desire and know-how to nurture a dynamic learning environment: a leader who will bring an unrelenting focus on developing high aspirations, a high quality and vibrant curriculum, and facilitate successful outcomes for all our students.
For an existing Head, this could be the next big challenge you seek…or, equally, for an experienced Deputy Head with still yet untapped potential, this could be the right opportunity for you.
Whilst applications are sought from practising Christians, equally, others committed to supporting the Christian ethos of the school are warmly invited to apply.
If you believe you can provide outstanding leadership, which inspires and motivates others towards excellence and ensures the very best education for all our learners, then we would love to hear from you.
