The Business Studies department offers courses to suit students of all abilities and interests. We have a dedicated conference room and ICT suite with student learning at the heart of everything we do. Lessons involve a mixture of written, verbal, creative, research and computer-based activities.

  • Students learn more about enterprise, which is initially delivered in their CPSHE lessons in Years 7 to 9. We are also passionate about the promotion of ethics, morals, e-safety and the need to keep young people safe online.

  • In Year 10, students can opt to study the Edexcel GCSE in Business Studies. This course is designed to support progression to A Level Business or Economics. Subject content includes enterprise and starting a business, economics (demand, supply, interest and exchange rates) and business and IT communication.

  • Some students can also opt to study BTEC Level 2 Travel and Tourism (equivalent to one GCSE).

  • In the sixth form, students can choose to study the new AQA A-level Business. This covers management, leadership and decision making, marketing, operational performance, finance, HR and business strategies.
