Business Studies

Business studies is an option subject that is taught at key stage 4. The Edexcel exam board is followed and through this, students are taken on a journey into understanding how business ideas come about, the inception of a business right through to building a successful business model.

Although many subject specific ideas are explored, the course has close cross-curricular links with Maths (calculating profit/loss and break-even points) and English (structuring exam-based questions). A strong interest in business topics and having up to date knowledge of business and economic affairs is very useful in being a success in this subject.
