Business Studies is a relatively new subject that has grown in popularity over the years due to its relevance in today’s society. It is a subject focussed on current affairs, and the syllabus ensures topics are linked to events that have shaped our economy’s success.
Changes in our working patterns are crucial to the UK continuing to be a main player on the world Stage. Our membership of the European Union has had a dramatic effect on our position in the world particularly when considering our trading links.
Business Studies is a subject that benefits from first hand experience, and Sixth Formers who have part time jobs can easily relate to many topics. The department tries to ensure that the students gain an appreciation of business through practical experiences either through visits to firms or by inviting business people into the classroom. Business games and competitions are also very popular.
