Wilson's School

Business and Economics

Our Aims

The Business and Economics Department aims for its students to develop an enthusiasm and understanding of the economy and its impacts. We want to foster a spirit of enquiry, a critical approach to thinking about current issues and to encourage enterprise and risk taking.

We have a wide range of resources available to achieve this aim. Students are able to enter the Bank of England Target 2.0 contest, compete in essay writing contests and participate in extended projects. These include an analysis of the stock market, investigations into businesses and economies plus a marketing project. We also have an extensive extension library and lectures by visiting specialists to broaden student engagement and challenge.

Lessons are well resourced and we pride ourselves in high levels of organisation and support for pupils at all levels. Students are provided with department developed workbooks suitable for the pupils at Wilson's.

The Business and Economics department offers highly popular GCSE Business and A Level Economics qualifications. A large number of pupils also continue to study Business and Economics education at degree level.
