Business Studies 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.

Business forms part of the commerce department and has two full time, dedicated teachers. The department also has two classrooms, both with interactive whiteboards and use of an ICT suite with interactive whiteboard and 30 networked PCs.

For information about the courses followed at both key stages 4 and 5 please follow the assessment link on the right hand side.
