About Buttershaw Business and Enterprise College
Buttershaw Business & Enterprise College is an improving school. We are an ambitious, community-focused academy of just over 1400 students serving an area of social deprivation on the southern edge of Bradford and seven miles from Leeds. BBEC is popular locally and is rapidly becoming the school of choice for the community of Buttershaw; for the last three years we have been over-subscribed in Year 7.
BBEC has a cohesive, highly skilled and ambitious staff team who place student success at the heart of all they do. Many of our students face multiple challenges and it is through clarity of vision, professionalism and determined support for students and for each other that we are bringing about improvement. We have the highest expectations for all our students and expect that our staff teach to the very highest level. We have a rigorous approach to quality assurance and a significant commitment to Continuing Professional Development. Teachers have many opportunities to improve their teaching pedagogy and pedagogical subject knowledge and we expect them to make the most of these opportunities to ensure that the highest of standards are maintained.
BBEC is situated in a modern building. It has well-equipped departments that are arranged in suites of rooms. All teachers have a laptop, all classrooms are equipped with projectors and interactive whiteboards and all classrooms have access to student laptops.
All at BBEC are dedicated to raising the aspirations of our students and improving cultural capital through ambitious schemes of learning in all year groups and a varied offer of extra-curricular activities and opportunities. We run trips and visits to places in the UK and across the world, our students take place in a myriad of competitions and our CEIAG programme is exemplary. BBEC is unique in having five academies in Art and Design, STEM , Performing Arts, Sport and Enterprise, all of which aim to broaden the experiences and skills of our students.
BBEC is a harmonious community and the vast majority of our students are polite, pleasant and respectful. A new, more focused, behaviour policy has been introduced and is beginning to have a positive effect. We expect successful candidates to continue to embed and develop further the improvements that have already been made.
