Business studies actively engages students to develop as effective and independent learners and as critical and reflective thinkers with enquiring minds. Students are encouraged to use a critical approach to distinguishing between fact and opinion, building arguments and making informed judgements.

How we organise learning
Business studies is an option subject that is offered to students at Key Stage 4. In Year 7 and Year 8, there are opportunities for students with an interest in entrepreneurship to take part in enterprise activities and projects as part of our wider co-curricular programme. At Key Stage 4, two pathways are available for students who would like to study business: GCSE and BTEC. Both pathways offer the opportunity to study business-related courses at sixth form or college and prepare students for a career in business.
