Business Studies

Business Studies is one of the most interesting, relevant and varied subjects available. The world of business affects each and every one of us on a daily basis. Newspaper and television headlines offer continual reminders of how important the business world is to us all. In recent years, much attention has been directed to issues such as: fair trade; business ethics; global warming and the credit crunch. Studying Business Studies gives students a valuable insight into how businesses operate. It also gives students the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to succeed in whatever future pathway they choose. Remember, even Scientists, Engineers and Artists will have to understand at least the basics of business.

Pupils can become involved in Business related competitions such as Student Investor, to build on the knowledge learnt in lessons.
