Business Studies

We aim to develop all students' appreciation and interest in the field of Business. We want to give them the confidence, independence and resilience to be able to progress to further education, training or employment.

We aim to make our students the entrepreneurs of the future; shaping the necessary skills and embedding the commercial knowledge that will develop their business ideas, enhance their creativity and ultimately help secure success. The spirit and pace of the workplace, the demands of day-to-day business environments, with workload balance and entrepreneurship are captured and developed through the Business curriculum.  

Throughout, our lessons also develop their skills to be successful employees, and this is embedded into our curriculum through classroom learning, coursework and enrichment; for example, the discussion of employment legislation, understanding money and the drawbacks and benefits to sources of finance, marketing and business life skills. Key commercial knowledge is assessed and developed through exams, task-based assignments and ongoing in-class feedback that allows students to discover, apply and demonstrate their talent and ambition within the context of a particular business.

We also want to develop written and verbal analysis and evaluation skills, which are transferrable across a variety of different environments.

Curriculum plan - further details of the curriculum for all year groups can be found in the curriculum plan below.
