To provide students with a dynamic learning environment that will introduce them to the world of business, whilst empowering them to develop as commercially minded and enterprising individuals.

The Business Studies department aims to provide our students with the knowledge required in an ever changing society. We aim to ensure that our students can go out into the dynamic contemporary business world with the attributes necessary to be successful employees and leaders.
