At Rhyddings Business & Enterprise School, Business Studies is part of the options curriculum for students in Yr 9, 10 & 11.

This is an Eduqas qualification and has been chosen as it allows our students to actively engage in business and develop and apply their theoretical knowledge to existing business situations.

Studying Business Studies encourages students to have enquiring minds and become critical and reflective thinkers.

Useful Business links:

We would encourage all students to spend time at home reviewing their learning and trying to work through any misunderstandings or areas of difficulty, before then discussing them in school with their teacher.
