Business Studies

Contact Curriculum Leader 


Key Stage 4

Students will learn about Business Studies from a theoretical and practical perspective, studying business in the context of entrepreneurs starting a small business and how businesses develop beyond the start-up phase.  These two themes focus on concepts, issues and decisions, with an emphasis on marketing, operations, finance, human resources and the impact of business on the wider world.

Students are assessed via two exams, each one worth 50% of the qualification.  Both exams will include calculations alongside short answer and extended answer questions based on business contexts.
