Business Studies

Our curriculum intent: why we teach what we teach in Business and Computing

Business

  • Students will learn the fundamentals of business, including an understanding of complex systems, market forces, entrepreneurship and the theory and praxis of business.
  • Students will be able to engage meaningfully in the world of business through developing their confidence with innovation, driving ideas, marketing products and learning to make informed judgements on quality and efficiency.
  • Students will become morally responsible as they learn about integrity in the workplace, and that businesses are no less morally accountable than individuals and should be driven to contribute positively to society. Through studying business, we seek to form the character traits of determination and honourable purpose.

Computing

  • Students will learn how computer systems operate, and how they are designed and created by employing computational thinking. Students will also gain information technology skills to create digital artifacts and develop skills in computational thinking.
  • Students will be able to use the knowledge and skills they have acquired to create and use computer systems, designing systems that meet user requirements and operate in a way that reflects real-world systems.
  • Students will become logical and rational problem-solvers, who create and use computer systems responsibly and with consideration. They will be able to express themselves using IT with integrity and showing self-control.
