Our Business Studies Department aims to support students to develop a strong understanding around entrepreneurial skills through a stimulating and safe learning environment. The Business Department strives to develop student’s understanding of the wider world, the role of businesses both in the UK and Globally, the role of governments and key stakeholders to Businesses, and to have a strong financial awareness.
The Business Studies curriculum currently runs only at GCSE at Haggerston School. Students will study a range of topics over the two years including learning about how businesses grow, different types of business ownership, marketing and finance.
The students also have the opportunity to undertake a mini research and investigation project where students are asked to report on a small local business.
The school works with Young Enterprise to run projects alongside the curriculum and through our PSHCE days.
