Ethos and Values


At The Lowry Academy, we are committed to ensuring that that every student is well educated, has the opportunity to reach their potential and is able to lead a happy and fulfilled life.

We believe in outstanding learning and experiences in and out of classroom. We bid to drive progress and achievement in the classroom alongside developing rounded young people who can thrive in adult life.

The Academy is developing a strong culture focused on delivering excellent standards in all aspect of school life whether that be learning, behaviour, attitude, uniform, attendance and punctuality. We insist upon consistency and a commitment from all.

We know our community well. We specialise in driving the best outcomes in our learners through a relentless focus on the academic curriculum, so our students make progress day in day out and ultimately gain excellent academic qualifications so that they stand as equals in any circle.  Our curriculum provides students with the core knowledge they need for success in education and later life. 

Our co-curricular activities develops the whole person and the talents of the individual. It allows all students to thrive outside the classroom, so they become responsible, respectful and active citizens who are able to play their part in adult life and contribute to the community.

We are proud of our commitment to deliver outstanding Education with Character.  Strong partnerships have been made with the local and wider community, giving our students the advantage of learning about issues on the local, national and international agenda, benefiting from external input and then learning to contribute themselves. Our co-curricular clubs work with our students to instil sense of integrity and confidence in them.
