curriculum intent

Business Studies is delivered at Key Stage 4 and 5 and offers students a detailed understanding of how businesses operate. Students will critically analyse and evaluate different aspects of the business model including business types, marketing, human resources, production, finance and the impact that the wider world has on the business community. All of the courses on offer within the department allow for inclusivity for all students, where we foster an approach to learning that enables our students to be aspirational in their expectations of how they can succeed.

We aim to enthuse students in their understanding of the wider world of business and how it impacts on their daily lives from education through to where they purchase their goods. During Key Stage 4 GCSE Business Studies, we focus on the understanding of the business basics and apply them to real world situations and business contexts, which are then further developed within Key Stage 5. We aim to provide students with the skills needed to be successful within the business world.
