Shuttleworth College is a place where everyone can live our motto; ‘Think Big, Chase Dreams & Succeed Together’.

We expect huge things of our young people here and set them up to be the best they can be in their future lives. Staff, students and families work together to get the very best out of the five years young people have in this school, with a no-excuses culture where everyone is expected to give their best every day!

Families, visitors, and Ofsted alike comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere in the college as well as how much pride our young people take in their appearance. Ofsted described the school as a ‘haven’ and our young people as ‘confident, friendly and courteous.’

We pride ourselves on running a school which is inclusive of the whole community in Burnley. Our young people go on to a whole range of experiences from Oxford/Cambridge, to apprenticeships in local businesses, to training abroad. We have a curriculum designed to meet the needs of, as well as challenge, all learners, regardless of ability.

I truly believe Shuttleworth is a fantastic place to learn and to work. If you would like to find out more about us or have a tour of the college please do not hesitate to contact us.
