The course is essentially trying to encourage and teach students to research and analyse information to make the correct business decision. Thus, there is a heavy dependence on case study and ‘real’ business material

Students will learn what a business is, alongside how managers and leadership can influence decision making. We will look at making decisions to improve marketing performance, operational performance, financial performance and human resource performance. Year 12 exams will be conducted internally to monitor progress. Year 13 Students will then go on to explore how to analyse the strategic position of a business, choose strategic direction, and learn how to pursue strategies and manage strategic change.
The course tries to embrace a range of learning styles, such as whole class discussion, group and individual work. We endeavour to make the course ‘real’ by visiting businesses and inviting business people into school.
Written exams at the end of the course.
The problem‐solving nature of the course would certainly assist candidates who wish to go on to higher education,
but the course would be equally suitable for candidates seeking work in the business sector, or even those wishing
to start a business of their own. A Level Business Studies is generally considered to be an effective foundation to
further theoretical study or an excellent broad introduction to anyone seeking a managerial career.
