In order to reflect the priorities of the school and provide an education that is valued by and valuable to all, the department aims to:
- To enable students to appreciate and be critical of the business world, its influences and implications
- To generate interest, enthusiasm and confidence in the subject, to stimulate curiosity and enjoyment of Business Studies
- To set high standards for students, to develop a variety of desirable and marketable personal qualities and prepare them for the next step in education or for employment
There are two dedicated, fully equipped business studies rooms in the stable block and we host a range of visiting speakers from a range of businesses including Nestlé and Aviva. Visits to many organisations are arranged including Coca Cola, St Gobain, Tesco, Top Shop, The Monk Bar Hotel, CPP and the NHS. Our students also have the opportunity to take part in a 3 day residential trip to Disneyland, Paris.
