Business Studies and Economics are offered as an optional subject in Year 10/11. It is also a popular choice in the Sixth Form. Please check the Sixth Form Course booklet for information about courses on offer in Years 12 &13.
The aim in the Business Studies department is to offer an exciting and dynamic curriculum that reflects the ever-changing nature of the business world. We want our pupils to develop an awareness and natural curiosity of the Business and Economic environment around them and to have a deeper understanding of the businesses that students will one day work for or run. Critical to this is learning how to manage current and future financial capability both personally and in business.
All students will study a wide range of business concepts and theories; from human resources, finance and marketing to business strategy, all of which will give them a winning edge in the employment market. Most importantly, we want our students to be able to apply these concepts and theories to real life businesses in order for them to provide sufficient analysis and evaluation to solve business problems and provide solutions.
The courses offered in the department provide valuable opportunities to develop key skills such as ICT, Maths, team working and communication, as well as developing confidence and inter-personal skills.

Our aim in the Economics department is to offer a progressive, diverse, high quality and challenging curriculum. It will support students at every stage, in their journey to enter the world of work as confident, articulate and well-rounded individuals. We want all students to apply economic theory to support analysis of current economic problems and issues. We strive to enable students to develop the knowledge and skills needed to understand and analyse data, think critically about current economic issues and make informed decisions. By the end of Year 13, students will have developed a critical approach to economic models and methods of enquiry. They will have a good knowledge of developments in the UK economy and government policies over the past fifteen years.
