Business Studies

Department Overview

Pupils can study Business in the 6th Form. Many of them dream of being a success in business or at least being their own boss. Our Business Studies programme can help them realise these dreams.

Whatever lies ahead, each and every young person will find that their future will be very strongly influenced by the business world.
