Business Studies A Level at Northgate High School

Course description

In the first year we start with business objectives and the main legal types of business, then move on to study managers, leadership, finance and decision making. In the second year you will build on that solid knowledge by learning topics that give you an insight into larger, multinational business organisations.

Course content

Learning in lessons is varied but due to the nature of the assessment the use of case studies is common. The emphasis is upon you contributing to your own learning by your involvement in lessons. Students will use the 5 R’s independent learning support to help complete their 5 hours per week private study. There are two weekly extra Business & Economics sessions to support students.

Entry requirements

Subject specific entry requirements: GCSE grade C in Business Studies or GCSE grade 4 in Mathematics and English Language if Business Studies not studied at GCSE.

Future opportunities

Business Studies is highly valuable for both university and School Leaver Programmes as it delivers an understanding of the ways organisations and economies work.

Note: This subject should not be taken with A Level Accounting due to the large overlap between them. It could be considered with A Level Economics but this is not recommended as it may narrow University options
