Business Studies at Herschel Grammar School

Course description

A Level Business Studies is a course that helps you to make sense of the real world of business. Business theory is explored and investigated using real examples and your own experience.

The teaching staff have many years of practical business experience which they use to help bring the subject to life. They will expect you to have an enquiring mind and an interest in what makes the world go round. Lessons are varied and you will be asked to contribute your ideas and opinions on a regular basis as well as participate in different group activities. This is a topical subject that achieves strong results.

The Edexcel four Unit specification is designed to make the subject very practical, giving students the skills that directly transfer to running a successful business. Every aspect of the course has relevance, making this a living, breathing subject.
