I am delighted that you are interested in Buttershaw Business & Enterprise College. I trust that you will find the information you need within our new website. If you do not, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Buttershaw is a popular and improving school which, nevertheless, understands the need to continue to improve in every area of school activity; we are determined to remain restlessly ambitious on behalf of our students and community.
The school ethos is underpinned by our shared values of wisdom, integrity, justice, compassion and ambition. We believe in teaching and modelling these values and using them as a reference point for our decision making. Whilst we want the very best qualifications for our students, we also want them to develop as citizens, able and keen to make a real difference in their community.
We are proud of our school and hope that you will see something of that reflected in these pages.
Mr RB Hughes
Christmas Early Finish
We will be finishing school at the earlier time of 12.15pm on Friday 19 December.
Our intended conversion to sponsored academy status has been delayed by a contractual issue. Conversion may, therefore, happen very soon, or, alternatively, not for some time. It is difficult, at this stage, to be precise. Clearly we shall keep parents and other interested parties updated as events unfold.
School aims for students
Our aims for students are that they should be values-driven, skilled and aspirational. The interpretation of these aims for 2014-17 have now been approved by governors and can be found here
