We offer a GCE in ‘A’ Level Business Studies and students follow the AQA specification. There are clear links to the GCSE (KS4) specification in terms of assessment criteria and previous knowledge, but this is not a pre-requisite for the subject.
We cover a range of functional areas in Business Studies and this is focused on Marketing, Finance, Management and Operational decisions. In class, we will develop critical and reflective thinking skills. Students will be encouraged to use the theories and models to both structure model examination style questions. Other aspects of focus during the year is the interrelated nature of business activities and how they affect competitiveness, the competitive environment and the markets in which businesses operate, the influences on functional decisions and plans including ethical and environmental issues.
