Business and ICT
The Business Studies department provides a range of courses at both KS4 and KS5.
Almost everyone will work for an organisation so the study of how they operate is always relevant, whether you go into a business related job or not. You may wish to set up your own business and you will learn many of the skills to do so. Many students continue their studies at University and go on to jobs in, for example, Marketing, Human Resources, Finance, and Operations.
The ICT department provides our students with a wide ranging and balanced ICT experience. This entitlement supports the students in gaining ICT knowledge, skills and understanding required for examination success and life after school. The work of the department is intended to encourage the use of Information Technology in a variety of contexts: school, home, community, recreation, business and industry. In these contexts, pupils are given opportunities to acquire competence, capability and critical skills through the implementation, use and evaluation of a range of Information Technology methods.
