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.

At BBEC, we recognise that our staff are our biggest asset. We believe that our children deserve only the best quality staff so recruit carefully and invest in training to ensure continued improvement and an excellent quality of education.

Although we are a large school we work very hard to ensure we retain our community, family ethos. We strongly believe education is a partnership between school, students and parents and work hard to develop this partnership.
