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.

IT/Computing

  • Students will learn about the functions and applications of computers. This includes understanding both hardware and software and how this can be helpfully manipulated and developed. Students will also learn about both the risks and opportunities that a hyper-connected world presents.
  • Students will be able to both use and create computer systems to make life and work more efficient and effective. Students will draw on and develop their problem-solving skills to find efficient IT solutions for a variety of applications.
  • Students will become wise, mature and discerning through learning about online behaviour. Students will think critically about information and interactions online through an understanding of computer algorithms and ensure that their own behaviour is driven by honourable purpose and a pursuit of truth.
