Head's Message
 
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.
 
Yours sincerely
 
Mr RB Hughes

BBEC week 23rd-26th June 2015
 
Students will once again have the chance to learn in a different way during this year's BBEC week. The normal timetable is suspended during these four days, allowing teachers to organise learning over a longer period of time. Each year group will work on different projects which each last a day.
 
At the end of the week, students will take part in their graduation, sports day, and most will enjoy a trip to a theme park as a reward for their hard work during the year.

 BBEC Got Talent
 
BBEC proved we really do have talent at our 'BBEC's Got Talent 'final. 12 acts performed to an exceptional standard, making the judges decision exceedingly difficult! The judges were unanimous in agreeing that Rebecca Price of Year 12 was the clear winner, performing a song she had written herself. Fuad Abdi was awarded second place with a beautiful dance piece choreographed himself. The judges were unable to separate two acts for third place and awarded Lily Wilkins and Lewis Aird (dancers) and Veronica Pawlowska (singer and previous winner) joint third. Amongst the runners up were some incredibly talented Year 7 singers who are sure to be even stronger by next years competition!
 
"Little Shop of Horrors"
 
A grisly tale of love, betrayal and man-eating plants: this year's school production of Little Shop of Horrors was a triumph of musical drama. Brilliant singing and solid acting, dashes of humour and moments if sadness all combined for a memorable night out. Well done to all the principals.
 
 
Thank you to Mr Horsfall and all the performing arts department for hours of timeless rehearsal organisation.

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.
 
Modern British Values
These have been much in the news recently.  We are proud of our values-based community at Buttershaw.  To complement and develop aspects of the agreed aims for our students, we are consulting on a draft statement of intent for Modern British Values. The draft can be found here. If you have any comments please let us know on: admin@buttershaw.net.
