Business Studies develops pupils’ insight into today’s business world, as well as equipping them with the skills necessary to further their study of this subject. We encourage pupils to develop a spirit of enterprise, and challenge the girls to think, develop and communicate their ideas effectively and put them into practice.
Business Studies is an increasingly important and popular subject. Business and enterprise are at the heart of national growth and development. In S3 and S4, pupils presently study for their National 5 qualification. Pupils acquire knowledge and understanding of the impact of business activities on society and develop skills in enterprise and employability as well as decision making skills whilst learning to interpret and evaluate business financial information. 100% credit passes in Standard Grade for the past five years.
In S5/6, pupils work towards their Higher Business Management. Higher Business Management is a popular subject both with pupils progressing from National 5 as well as pupils studying it for the first time in S6. The pass rate has averaged 96% in the last three years.
