Our passion in Business is to inspire intensely curious, problem solving future entrepreneurs, equipped with the best grade they can achieve to access the next stage of their education.
Students will learn a deep understanding of how a modern economy operates and be guided to skilfully articulate this knowledge. Opportunities to encounter real business experiences are embedded throughout the curriculum as we seek to cultivate an entrepreneurial mind set that develops student independence, perseverance and leadership.
These experiences will empower students to start to build relationships with stakeholders in both the local community and beyond and become responsible citizens of the global economy.
How is Business delivered at Warden Park?
This subject is available as an option subject at GCSE. Students who opt for GCSE Business will have 5 lessons per fortnight.
Students in Year 8 can opt to undertake a specialism in Enterprise & Marketing as part of our Key Stage 3 Graduation programme. This will provide students with an insight into the process around developing a business idea, calculating revenues, costs and profits developing a marketing campaign and presenting their business idea to a panel. This is a great specialism to provide an insight into the world of enterprise.
AS students enter key Stage 4 they also have the option to undertake one of two twilight programmes offered by the Business department: Young Enterprise or a formal GCSE equivalent qualification in Enterprise & Marketing.
