KS4 Business

We aim to give students a broader understanding of the interrelated nature of Business activity. The key focus of the Business GCSE qualification is to develop enterprising minds. Students will have the opportunity to explore how entrepreneurs start a business including how to grow a business at local, national and international levels. Students will also develop skills in practical problem-solving activities through different Business case studies.
