Curriculum Information


Through studying our GCSE in Business Studies, students gain business knowledge, understanding and skills. They begin to understand current events in local, national and global contexts. They learn how to use relevant terms, concepts and methods effectively to describe business and economic behaviour. Students also consider business ethics and the impact of business on the environment.

We want our students to develop as independent learners and encourage them to use an enquiring, critical approach to distinguish facts from opinions, form arguments and make informed judgements.

This course prepares students for further study of business and business-related subjects, including Advanced Subsidiary GCE in Business Studies, Advanced GCE in Business Studies and Applied GCE in Business.


Through studying this specification, students will:

  • gain an insight into the world of business;
  • gain understanding of organisations and their ability to meet society’s needs and wants;
  • learn how to develop enterprising and creative solutions to business problems and issues;
  • become aware of the ethical dilemmas and responsibilities faced by organisations and individuals; and
  • acquire a range of skills including:
    • decision making;
    • problem solving;
    • the ability to quantify and manage information; and
    • the ability to challenge assumptions.
