Business Studies

What will my child’s learning look like in Business Studies?

All students within business will be taught a challenging and enriching curriculum which promotes entrepreneurial skills throughout and provides students with mastery level knowledge. We will work with local businesses so that the students can raise their aspirations and develop their entrepreneurial skills and become effective problem solvers.

What are we aiming to achieve in the Business Department?

The aim of the department is to develop, stimulate and maintain student curiosity, interest in and enjoyment of Business. This is done by focusing on technical skills, such as market research skills, planning, promotional and financial skills using realistic work scenarios, and personal skills (such as monitoring own performance, time management and problem solving). This will instil not only business knowledge but vital skills needed for further study and employment.
