Business Studies


Welcome to the Business Studies Department

Our Department 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.
