We have two full time teachers of Business. It is a popular option choice at both GCSE and A level. At GCSE our students begin the course by completing a mini-enterprise project to introduce them to the world of business. Students are encouraged to participate in the Student Investor Competition each year and the Sixth form are given the opportunity to become involved in the Young Enterprise Programme. For information about the courses followed at both key stages 4 and 5 please follow the assessment link on the right hand side.
Business is part of the Commerce Department. Resources are very good with business having the use of an ICT suite with an interactive whiteboard and 30 networked PCs. The department also has two classrooms, both with interactive whiteboards.
