Business studies give students the opportunity to explore the nature and progress of businesses in a dynamic, changing and competitive environment.
KEY STAGE 4 GCSE IN BUSINESS STUDIES
Students learn about how small businesses are developed and discover how businesses promote themselves and keep their customers happy.
They also learn how businesses manage both their finances and the people who work for them. Students take a critical approach to business to develop skills and understanding required such as business communication and the ethics of sustainability of business.
Studying business encourages students to be inspired, moved and challenged and prepares them to make informed decisions about further learning opportunities and career choices.
KEY STAGE 5
- We teach the AQA Economics Syllabus. Our approach to Economics is to apply economic theory to support analysis of current economic problems and issues, and encourage students to appreciate the interrelationships between microeconomics and macroeconomics.
- Content takes into account fundamental advances and changes in economic ideas such as behavioural economics, importance of financial markets and development economics, so that students can relate what they are learning to the world around them.
