Ethos and Values

At The Lowry, we are committed to making the difference for all our young people. Our aim is to produce well-rounded young people who are prepared for our ever-changing world. We do this by focusing on the personal, social and academic aspects of education, which will drive our young people to reach their potential and achieve true excellence. 

The core purpose of our school is to raise achievement for all and to do this within a framework of positive behaviour and relationships. We aim to ensure that The Lowry Academy is a happy place to learn and work and that there are equal opportunities for all. We provide challenge for all students through lessons and enrichment opportunities, according to our values:

  • Aspiration
  • Resilience
  • Respect
  • Creativity
  • Confidence 

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum. We provide clear objectives for learning whilst offering the chance to work independently and with others. We give individual praise through the Arbor reward system which is shared with both pupils and parents/carers.
We value the relationships with parents and carers. We always work to communicate effectively and work collaboratively to secure the best possible outcomes for our students.
Partnerships are important to us and we aim to work closely with both the local and wider community.  The school values its international links and constantly seeks ways in which student experiences can be broadened to prepare them for life beyond school and the world of work within our Student Futures programme.
