Business Studies 

Students are given the opportunity to study Business Studies at Key Stage 4. All courses are taught by specialist teachers in well equipped learning environments. Ofsted noted that the Business Studies curriculum at Castle High School meets students' needs well and that the quality of teaching within the department is "good".

 

New! GCSE Business Studies
Our new course launched in September 2016. Students study a wide range of topics and have the opportunity to focus on real business activity as part of this course. There are two exams to be sat at the end of year 11, each worth 50% of the total GCSE grade.

 

GCSE Applied Business Studies 
The GCSE in Applied Business Studies ends in 2018, with our current year 10 students being the last to sit the exams for this course. Students study two units for the single GCSE award. Combined, these units give learners exposure to a vast range of business issues.

Extra Curricular Activities 
Enterprise Club is led by Mr. Palmer from September to December every year and sees students participate in a national competition developed by Coca-Cola. In the last three years, our school has been fortunate enough to qualify TWICE for the Midlands UK final of the competition.
