As a department we aim to inspire students to become the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. Students who study Business Studies should feel empowered to enter an ever-changing world of work equipped with the knowledge and understanding of how businesses operate.
The curriculum is underpinned by opportunities for students to encounter real world business experiences. This inherently relies on students building resilience, independence and their ability to work in teams.
We are a small department of 3 dedicated teachers. Student attainment and progress are excellent and consistently above national average. Students in years 9,10 and 11 study the Edexcel GCSE syllabus.
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.
