“The key to success is to focus on goals, not obstacles”

Business Studies & Applied Law Intent

We are experts in the fields of Business and Law.  As a team we aim to grow successful learners who are independent and enjoy their learning.  We want our learners to thrive in an environment that supports outstanding progress and excellence.  We aim to create an ethos that allows learners of all abilities to experience success as a result of hard work and continued effort. We work collaboratively to provide our students with inspiring, relatable and thought provoking resources in a can do, enthusiastic and respectful manner. We strive to be at the forefront of innovation through using the most up to date, research driven pedagogical techniques to help our students make the most out of their studies.  We are highly aspirational and passionate about empowering each of our learners with life-long skills and knowledge to be able to thrive in our competitive world and to raise aspirations.  We work with our learners to develop a strength of character, resilience and growth mind-set that will help them to overcome the challenges they are likely to encounter in adult life. By providing a range of enrichment opportunities and real world experiences, we allow our pupils to succeed in the next stage of their education, training or employment. By developing an appreciation of the “real world”, we believe that our students wholeheartedly deserve a learning experience that does not narrow their life chances but enables social equity, mobility, builds cultural capital and a sense of being able to take on the world.
