Business Studies will not be offered as a course this year.  The information here is only relevant to this years, Year 11.

This course is intended for students who want to establish a broad understanding of the world of business.  It provides a springboard to business-related areas of Higher Education, and is relevant to a wide range of other areas of study.  It also provides a basis for understanding the world of business when students are looking to obtain employment.

A GCSE in Business Studies is designed to deepen students’ understanding of the way in which businesses operate in a dynamic, changing and competitive environment. This understanding is rooted in current business theory and practice, looking at a number of organisations and their decision-making processes.  It enriches students’ understanding and awareness of citizenship by examining business from a range of perspectives. It requires students to recognise that there is a spiritual, moral, ethical, social and cultural dimension to business decision-making.
