● A Level business studies (AQA)

The department is a popular choice for students at both Key Stage 4 and 5, with numbers increasing in all courses. At A level we run 2 classes at AS and A2 for both Economics and Business. We presently run 5 classes in Year 10 of GCSE and 4 in Year 11. 

Department overview

The department has grown significantly in the past three years and presently has 5 teaching staff. As a department we pride ourselves on our results, subject knowledge, extracurricular activities and additional support we provide to all students.


Business A level results are ALPS band 3 ‘excellent’ with many students going on to study the subject at university. The GCSE results are some of the highest in the school at 89% A*-C. The department adds significant value to pupils not only compared to national results, but also in comparison to pupils’ performance inside the school.

Extra curricular

The department provides numerous opportunities for pupils to stretch their understanding of the subjects away from lessons. These include outside speakers from economic think tanks; lecture visits to the LSE, and an annual trip to Brussels to see the EU in action.

Support for pupils

We pride ourselves on the level of support and care we provide to the students within the department. This support covers a range of areas including UCAS applications and specific gaps in subject knowledge. We feel this support makes a significant difference to pupils’ chances of success.
