Economics is an exciting, dynamic subject that allows students to develop an understanding of the complexities and interdependence of economic activities in a rapidly changing world.

By learning how to explain and evaluate economic problems and possible solutions, pupils will acquire a way of thinking as economists and develop a logical approach to thinking and reasoning. By learning how to use economic data from a range of sources, such as tables, charts and graphs, pupils will acquire the skills to make informed judgements and to communicate in a clear and concise way. Pupils will benefit from these transferable skills in their further study and employment. Economics is an academic subject that is highly thought of both by universities and employers.  


We aim to create the very best Economics students.

The aim of the Economics curriculum is to develop students’ understanding of how the local / national / global economy works through analysing economic issues, problems and institutions that affect everyday life. The aim of the Business studies curriculum is to equip students with the appropriate knowledge and skills needed to develop their future study options and their employability whilst studying business problems and opportunities. 


In Economics we teach our curriculum through using a variety of teaching strategies and real-world tasks.

High expectations are placed on the students regarding their precise language use, both in classroom discussion and written work. Students are expected to concisely describe established theories, but beyond that, an emphasis is placed upon higher level thinking skills, including critical analysis and evaluation, and students are expected to frame their arguments in flowing, accurate written responses, as well as using quantitative techniques to inform their positions and support arguments
