Business Studies involves a range of skills, both quantitative and qualitative, and complements virtually any other GCSE and A level course. Business Studies represents an excellent choice for students who are seeking breadth without venturing into wholly unfamiliar territory.
For those planning university studies, it encourages skills useful for any course. For those planning a career in business, or one where business techniques will be useful, it provides opportunities for developing practical skills, as well as an overview of business theory and issues. For anyone, it encourages an interest in the world outside school and provides some excellent life skills in basic financial understanding.
Department and Resources
Teachers use ICT as an integral part of their teaching and we use the school Virtual Learning Environment for students to access resources and assignments. We have a wide variety of both new and traditional business studies resources which students can use to develop their skills and knowledge. The main Business Studies classroom is a large room with flexibility for students to work on tables in groups, have business meetings and also have access to a computer each.
