The Business Studies department is one of the most popular departments in the school in terms of student numbers. The department features in the curriculum at Key Stage 4 and in the Sixth Form. It is therefore a subject which students actively choose. At both levels, the subjects we offer feature in well balanced option blocks giving students the opportunity to combine the subject(s) with others which dovetail with student interest and aptitude.
It provides that rare balance of wide relevance and academic rigour. Past students include people working for government departments in the UK and elsewhere, many running their own businesses, those who have risen to high managerial positions in international companies and one old boy of the school who is currently a New York stockbroker.
The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
