Business @ All Saints' Catholic High School

Business is front-page news. The way companies operate is under greater scrutiny than ever before, while TV programmes like Dragons Den and The Apprentice have raised the profile of Business to a new generation. This course enables students to engage with, explore and understand business behaviour and develop a critical understanding of what Business is and does. Business students therefore study constantly updated topical issues that can generate change for business organisations and the ways in which businesses respond to these issues.

Here at All Saints we involve our sixth form Business students in a number of activities to develop a depth of understanding about how their academic study relates to real life. Students are therefore encouraged to take part in competitions such as the BiG Challenge, which is an opportunity for students to pitch their business ideas, test their products and sharpen their selling skills.
