Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Business Studies

“A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business”                                                                                          

Henry Ford

At Chobham Academy, Business and Enterprise play a key part in the curriculum, from Key Stage 3. Although this is a titmetabled lesson until Key Stage 5, students engage in opportunities with local businesses, and national businesses in the City, including Morgan Stanley and Citibank.

Staff

Ms S Rees - Director of Learning, Business Studies and Economics  

Miss M Ahmed – Teacher of Business, I/c of Year 12

Key Stage 5

Students study Business Studies at Key Stage 5 and follow the AQA specification  

In Year 12 students study two units, the first looks at the set-up of the business looking at planning and financing a business and the second unit looking at managing a growing business.

In Year 13 the students expand on their knowledge from Year 12 and study a unit called Strategies for Success which looks at how large businesses continue to grow and manage their resources. The other unit looks at the business environment and managing change and encourages students to develop their understanding of the wider context of business and research the current business climate.

ILT Tasks: Business Studies students are provided with a wide range of ILT tasks such as research tasks looking at the business environment; reading of business literature and business journals; and the opportunity to practice examination questions.

Extra Curricular

Students receive the opportunity to compete in Business and Enterprise activities throughout KS3, 4 and 5.

This year, students have participated in projects led by:

Morgan Stanley

Citibank

A real triumph was the 'Next Big Thing' competition, for which Chobham took the trophy this year, and the £1000 prize for our team!
