As a department we aim to inspire students by bringing the real world into the classroom. Business plays a key role in so many parts of our life, and this is what makes it such a relevant, exciting and inspiring subject. We aim to give students skills and knowledge that will ensure success in the work place. Students often work in teams and look at actual business problems, where they are tasked to come up with creative solutions.
We are a small department of 3 dedicated teachers. Students achieve excellent outcomes in Business and are consistently one of the highest achieving groups in the school. Students in years 9,10 and 11 study the Edexcel GCSE sylabus.
The school runs the Young Enterprise programme, with our year 10 students competing in the Mid Sussex region. Pupils work as a team to create innovative products and creative marketing ideas. They then sell these products to the public, with the hope of making a profit for their shareholders.
We pride ourselves on our links with the local business community and regularly have guest speakers to talk about their experiences in industry. Students also embark on a week of work experience in a business as part of the year 10 core curriculum.
