Business and Enterprise
Welcome to the Business and Enterprise Faculty. Our team of seven specialist teachers and two teaching assistants deliver a wide range of courses throughout Key Stages 4 and 5, as well as helping to develop financial awareness courses as part of the tutor programme.
Business Studies is a thriving and successful department within the Business and Enterprise Faculty. Our team comprises of seven highly driven teachers who encompass a diverse range of skills, all with different backgrounds of industry and teaching placements. The Business Studies Department has successfully expanded each year since 2005.
Business Studies is an extremely popular subject which is consistently over-subscribed largely due to the diverse topics that are studied. We teach GCSE and A Level Business Studies with teachers specialising in their areas of experience and strengths. We have a very high retention of AS students continuing at A2 and a large proportion successfully carry on to a Business based University course.
We are now also offering GSCE Economics to students as an option in Year 9. This three year course will equip students with the appropriate skills and knowledge for future employment, looking at micro and macro economic subject content.
We also provide a variety of extra-curricular activities in order to develop students’ skills and experiences including a visit to Belgium centred around the European Parliament, an Enterprise Challenge an opportunity to join the Promotions Team and an opportunity to participate in the IFS Student Investor Challenge.
As a department we aim to convey the importance of the diverse range of aspects of Business to students, so that they are able to use the knowledge and skills they acquire throughout the courses we provide in any future career they choose..
