Message From The Head

RuthfeatureWelcome to Shuttleworth College.

My name is Ruth England and I took up the post of Head teacher here at Shuttleworth in September 2014.

Shuttleworth is a thriving high school with a truly comprehensive intake of students from across Burnley.  We are fortunate to have a highly skilled teaching and support staff to enable our young people to achieve their very best.

Our motto ‘Think BIG. Chase DREAMS. Succeed TOGETHER.’ permeates our work in the college.  All staff work to inspire and challenge our learners to open their minds to the endless possibilities life has for them.

We expect a lot of our students and we have extremely high standards.  OFSTED and visitors alike have commented on their excellent behaviour and attitudes.  We have a curriculum model which challenges all learners, regardless of ability, whilst offering a lot of support for our most vulnerable young people. Summer 2016 saw the best results on the history of the college and we are on track to beat the record again this summer.

All students are encouraged to nurture talents and interests outside of the classroom from music to Duke of Edinburgh to fundraising.

We welcome tours and visits from parents or visitors at any time.  If you are interested in finding out more about our work here please contact my PA Mrs Atkinson to arrange a visit.

Ruth England.
