Department Overview

Business Studies at Biddenham allows students to develop their entrepreneurial spirit and enterprise ideas as well as securing the knowledge of key Business Studies topics including: Ownership, Finance, Recruitment, Marketing and External influences. 

A variety of activities and learning styles will allow our students to develop their academic writing through the use of coursework as well as participating in more hands-on activities including, pitching a micro enterprise idea, exploring marketing methods used by businesses and understanding accountancy and finance formulas. They will gain the opportunity to use real life business case studies and experience talks and visits from some local business owners.

Business Studies is an option subject at key stage 4 and is selected in year 9. The course is taught over three years and includes two formal assessments which consists of two external examinations at the end of year 11.

Students can then choose to study BTEC Level 3 Business in sixth form. This is taught over a two year course with one examination and one coursework unit each year.
