Business Studies

Back to Subjects

The Business Studies department aims to inspire students to understand the importance of enterprise and the nature of the business world. Students are provided with a broad and balanced perspective of business, as well as an inspiration for success and a desire to work hard when they leave St Richard Gwyn. Through subject content, students are provided with opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills to evaluate the dynamics of a business. The department aims to ensure students enjoy their learning to make good progress by applying their knowledge and skills to the subject as well as events faced in their everyday lives.


Students will become aware of the impact of business in the real world through exploring a range of diverse case studies on local to global businesses. They will come to appreciate a wider perspective of how businesses operate in a global multicultural society which will open up their view of events and issues within the global business and economic environment. We embrace the use of technology in the department and strive to develop confident students who can be creative, resilient and skilled for the global workplace.
