At KS4 the GCSE curriculum focuses on developing enterprise skills in Year 10, a good preparation for all students who may be considering running their own business in the future. In Year 11 students follow the economics pathway in order to gain a deeper understanding of how economic decisions are made.
Key Stage 5
In Year 12 students can undertake a vocational course in Business at either Level 2 or 3, depending on prior achievement. These courses give students the practical skills to succeed in the workplace or in higher education. For students looking for a purely academic route we offer A Level Economics, a qualification which is highly valued by the leading universities.
We also run an industry qualification in Personal Finance for students who may be considering a career in finance.
