Business Studies

Subject Vision 

As a department we aim to prepare our students to be tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, equipped and able to be successful in any challenge they encounter; through becoming independent life-long learners.

We aim to enable every Business Studies student to leave school with an accredited qualification and have high personal expectations.
