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.

Refugee Week 2022

There will be activities every day between 20th – 24th June to support Refugee Week 2022
– Tutor Group Shoe Boxes
These are for arriving refugees (spares may be sent to Ukraine), so we are looking for things like toiletries (that are not liquids) such as wrapped soaps / toothbrushes / hair brushes and also gifts for young refugees, like soft toys, pens, crayons, colouring books or even some fun socks! Each Tutor group will make 1 shoe box, so students only need to bring in one item.

We are hoping that staff, students and parents will supply some cakes, which will be sold in the hall at break and lunch time.
– Additional Clothing Day
(£1 to wear an extra item of yellow or blue clothing, with your school uniform to support Ukraine)

If you have any old clothes that you no longer wear, please bring them in, we are looking for items like hats / jumpers / shirts / jeans etc, as well as any old uniform such as white shirts / school trousers / school skirts / school shoes – these will be gifted to Ukrainian children who will be filtering into Leicestershire schools soon!
