Business is an established A Level course and its popularity continues to grow. With an increasing number of students going on to study Business degrees at university the course has seen a continued increase in the number of applicants year on year.

It is a profound and challenging subject that requires the student to be passionate about business and remain focused throughout the duration of the course.

The subject seeks to develop application, analytical and evaluative skills through both numerate and literate techniques. It also features elements from other disciplines such as Economics, Sociology, Law and Psychology.

Success in almost every profession today requires an understanding of how a commercial or business organisation operates. Choosing Business gives the student a great foundation from which to embark on a wide variety of careers within the business sector and beyond.

The Business course offers an excellent range of classroom resources. The classroom activity is supplemented by the opportunity to take part in annual business trips, offering students the chance to experience a real business environment.
