Welcome to the Business Studies page. Within the Academy the Business Studies staff have a strong belief that business should be studied out in the real world rather than from text books. To this end our studies are based around real businesses in the North West of England such as the Trafford Centre, Cineworld and Chester Zoo and where appropriate educational visits are organised to support learning.
The Business Studies staff believe in not only delivering the business knowledge so that our students succeed in their qualifications, but also teaching the skills that employers value from our school leavers. This includes skills such as being able to speak confidently to customers, delivering presentations and completing business documentation.
The department is enriched by active Enterprise projects and in the past have made, marketed and sold their own jewellery, key rings, mugs and even ran a stationary shop serving the whole Academy.
