Business Studies

Welcome to the Business Studies Department

Our Vision

The Business Education Department aims to create an atmosphere that is dynamic in terms of its delivery of subject material, stimulating and engendering an awareness of events and issues within the global business and economic environment. We embrace the use of technology in engaging our students and ensuring they achieve their potential during their studies. We ensure Copthall’s Business curriculum is broad and balanced for all of our student’s needs. Students study GCSE Business Studies at KS4 and at KS5 we offer a very successful BTEC Level 3, allowing progression onto further education.

The Curriculum Leader can be reached via enquires@copthall.barnet.sch.uk

Facilities

We offer our students a wide range of entrepreneurial experience across the GCSE and BTEC courses. Students have access to computer rooms to complete their assignments. We also have a range of textbooks, online resources to support student learning. The department is also building links with local businesses in the area.

Extra-curricular activities

Students can take part in the Brent Cross retail Challenge, which is a competition aimed at KS5 students.

We organise trips to local, national businesses which are appropriate to the nature of the course or BTEC assignment.

Students can also set up business ideas as explored through the BTEC course
