Why Study Business Studies?

The subject offers both academic success and an interesting and ever-changing area of study.

The subject enables students to gain an appreciation of the main aspects of the business world and the way businesses make their decisions. Students will gain an understanding of the relationship between business theory and practice.

Business Studies will provide the ideal option for candidates who wish to take either Science or Humanities based subjects. More specifically, Business Studies provides an ideal background for those considering self-employment or thinking of pursuing a career in Finance or Marketing.

Students are introduced to business by building their knowledge of core business concepts and applying them to business contexts to develop a broad understanding of how businesses work. Students are encouraged to use an enquiring, critical and thoughtful approach to the study of business, understand that business behaviour can be studied from a range of perspectives, and challenge assumptions.

Extra Curricular

Students will be invited to join the Young Enterprise Scheme.

Young Enterprise is run as an extra-curricular activity outside of the school day (presently Monday lunchtimes) and as part of Wednesday afternoon activities.

The Young Enterprise Company Programme provides young people (aged 15-19 years old) with the opportunity to set up and run their own real company while they are still at school or college. Each company is guided through the experience by a volunteer adviser from a local business.
