The Business Studies department allows students to explore real life businesses in a way which brings the outside world into the classroom. We believe students should be engaged and take an active role in their learning through using mini individual businesses as a context to deliver subject content.

The department is well resourced and aims to meet the needs of all learners. Students experience variety throughout lessons, using business case studies, class games and ICT to engage all in the subject.  Learning should not just take place within the classroom and where possible we visit local and national businesses to gain further understanding of how they operate.


When pupils choose their options at the end of Key Stage 3 we offer the following successful qualifications:
