The Business department seeks to promote a wider understanding amongst pupils of the economy and business-related topics and to develop their employability skills for their future careers.
The GCSE Business and Communication Systems is an engaging course that focuses on current and emerging communication systems technology. It allows pupils to explore and suggest improvements to communication systems within a business environment. It also develops the practical skills needed to maintain and use standard office software, including the main hardware and software components, and how these are operated within a business.
A-Levels Business is a popular course that enables pupils to develop an understanding of a wide range of business-related topics. We also offer the Cambridge Technical Business course (equivalent to an A-Level).
Pupils learn about developing business strategies, different business structures, ways of financing businesses and developing business plans.
They also learn how to generate profits, recruit and manage staff, operations management, marketing and the challenges of managing change.
