Business

In year 9 students have the opportunity to select Business as an optional subject.  This course will run over 2 – 3 years.  Students will only have one small online examination in either year 9 or year 10, dependent on when the teacher feels they are ready.  The remainder of this course is made up of coursework. 

Students will begin by looking at how the economy works. This will then develop into looking at what type of small business they could start.  The work they complete in year 9 will contribute towards their final portfolio of coursework at the end of the course.  Each unit of work will be graded with a Pass, Merit or a Distinction. 

Extra Curricular

There are a number of opportunities for students to enjoy extra curricular activities in IT, we have a mine craft club over lunchtime. After school students can come and complete homework or work on addition IT based work.
