Business Studies

  • 6th_form_dalo

“My Model for business is The Beatles: They were four guys that kept each other’s negative tendencies in check;
they balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts.
Great things in business are not done by one person, they are done by a team of people.”

Steve Jobs, 2003

Our Philosophy
We believe that Business Studies is a fantastic aid in helping all to use evidence in making considered judgments. It should be taught by placing students in the position of real life decision makers rather than as mere recipients of business theory. Lessons should always be contemporary and challenging and ensure the students gain a genuine insight into the complexities of the business environment. All will learn to differentiate between powerful and superficial evidence which will help them to make reasoned judgments.

What we expect from our students
Our role is to facilitate learning and to build an effective partnership with students. You will already have many of the skills needed to succeed in this subject. The trick is now to apply them effectively in a new context. You will meet this challenge naturally if you are enthusiastic in lessons, act on constructive criticism and show patience when progress is slow.
