A2 Business Studies

Year 13 Business Studies encourages the practical application of business concepts and teaches students to evaluate through a number of different business case studies. It builds on their knowledge from studying AS business studies and promotes active rather than passive understanding.

Lessons are challenging and interactive for students, engaging them in a variety of learning strategies and integrating real life business examples to consolidate their understanding. Year 13 students have a mock examination in January to track their progress ready for the exam in June.
