The Business Studies department at Reddish Vale High School aims to develop young business people and entrepreneurs. Pupils are introduced to business through building knowledge of core business concepts and applying them to business contexts to develop a broad understanding of how businesses work and entrepreneurship. Progressing through the levels of study, pupils will take a more strategic view of business opportunities and issues. Pupils are encouraged to use an enquiring, critical and thoughtful approach to the study of business, to understand that business behaviour can be studied from a range of perspectives and to challenge assumptions. The courses offered include GCSE, and OCR Cambridge National Awards.

We also aim to provide an insight into the amazing world of business and allows pupils to develop an appreciation of how businesses are an integral part of everyday life, throughout the units taught in both in Year 9 and Key Stage 4.

In addition, entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy, both the GCSE and vocational course will provide the pupils with an opportunity to develop and grow these skills beyond the course content through our links to employers and Manchester Metropolitan University.
