Students studying Business develop a love for entrepreneurship, problem solving, reading and gaining a deep understanding. This will enable them to assess the impact of current affairs on firms and achieve a wealth of transferable skills whilst acquiring a rich knowledge of business theory and strategic thinking. Business allows our students to flourish and become successful, creative leaders and critical thinkers whilst at School and beyond. Business opens the doors to a breadth of exciting and empowering opportunities in our society such as Management, Law, Accountancy, Logistics amongst many other highly regarded professions.
These key syllabus areas link in well with other subjects such as Maths, Geography, Languages, Economics and Accounts and Media. It is a versatile and ever-changing subject which promotes independent thinking and creativity amongst students.

A qualification in Business will get you started in the world of commerce and business and give you the skills and knowledge to progress to higher education, if taken at A level.
