Business and Economics Curriculum

Intent Statement




Our students are at the centre of all our decisions. Our intent is to provide a safe space for them to thrive in Business and Economics, so they have an enjoyable learning experience, thereby helping to prepare them for their future working environment. Our staff work with love and are positive role models, ensuring our students’ school life in Business and Economics is guided by a strong spiritual and moral compass. We treat all students with respect and encourage students to treat their peers with respect also. Our well-planned lessons and feedback to students, epitomises how we work with love.



Our intent is to support the development of the whole student. Through the academic pillar, we strive to develop our students’ breadth of knowledge and understanding, and deepen their critical thinking in terms of how successful entrepreneurs make decisions, often influenced by Government policy. This in turn will guide them in their understanding of how these decisions are affected by technological, cultural, social, ethical and environmental choices, which we hope will help to nurture entrepreneurial talent in the future.



We want to provide an ambitious, knowledge-rich curriculum to ensure our students are provided with a high-quality Business and Economics education, which inspires entrepreneurial talent, encourages risk and resilience and prepares them for their future careers. Our can-do culture focuses on the key skills of: Application of Knowledge and understanding to different business contexts, ranging from small enterprises to large multinationals businesses operating in a global context. Our students develop a curiosity and interest in the decision-making process which encourages their ability to Analyse the impacts of these decisions which influences simple everyday consumer behaviour. Their ability to Evaluate how these impacts help to problem-solve, encourages our students to draw well informed short-term and long-term judgements. Our planning and sequencing of lessons is underpinned by ‘know more, remember more and as a result progress more’.



Knowing our students will be future leaders, we strive to embed a culture of high expectations. To support this, we lead by example in our department. We discuss contemporary Business and Economic issues, giving them the opportunity to identify problems and find a solution, so they develop their leadership skills for the future. Through encouraging super-curricula activities, students are encouraged to become well-informed and confident young people, who can express their ideas confidently and succinctly. We promote the values of further education both at University or through the Apprenticeship route.
