KS4 - Business Enterprise
The aim of the Business Curriculum is to provide students with the knowledge and understanding necessary to prepare them for a working life in modern Britain as an employee, employer or an entrepreneur. We want our student to have the passion and desire to strive to be the next female CEO of a multi national organisation.
In particular, the business curriculum will foster pupils’ knowledge of finance, economics, enterprise, marketing concepts and the law.
Teaching will equip pupils with the skills to carry out research, weigh up evidence and make reasoned judgments. Our intent is for our students to enter working life as confident young women.
