Business Studies

Modern technology and computers have revolutionised the world of work and commerce which is why our Business and ICT provision is very closely linked.

A qualification in business is useful to those who wish to pursue careers in marketing, PR, finance or HR in the future.

Key Stage 4

GCSE Business Studies is an optional subject in which students have the opportunity to gain real, practical experiences by setting up of their own enterprise in Year 10. This allows learners to experience what it is like to be an entrepreneur and both the risks and rewards which accompany this.

Our students complete two exams and a controlled assessment during their studies on the following topics:

  • Setting up a business
  • Growing a business
  • Investigating business

Throughout the course of their GCSE studies students will be encouraged to develop their independent learning skills, build arguments based on facts and research, evaluate evidence and appreciate the varying perspectives of different stakeholders in the world of business.
