Business Studies

Current Teaching Staff:  

Mrs E Gale  - Head of Department

Mr D Downing


Examination board and syllabus:    ​Edexcel


“Business studies has become one of my favourite subjects; I really enjoy the lessons and am now thinking about studying it next year at A-level. ”  

Business Studies is available to girls as an option at GCSE, AS and A2 level. Economics is taught in the Sixth Form.

The topical nature of these subjects means that resources are constantly up-dated. Recent case studies and current data are therefore drawn from newspapers, magazines, TV and IT sources.

Students are expected to use a wide range of sources in researching their assignments. These subjects provide an important contribution to modern citizenship and are supplemented by talks, visits and competitions.
