Business Studies

Ms S Clayton - Head of Department

Welcome to the Business Studies Department


The Business Studies Department aims to provide an insight into the amazing world of business and allows students to develop an appreciation of how businesses are an integral part of everyday life, throughout the units taught in both Key Stage 4 & 5 (see links for further details).

If you've ever thought about running your own business, or have a great idea for launching a new product or service, then A-Level Business Studies will equip you with the skills and expertise to start a successful business career or to attend a higher education course.

Mrs Sarah Clayton Head of Department
Mrs Sinead Lees Teacher of MFL and Business

There are a range of activities for students to get involved in through their Business Studies education here at Altrincham College, with the subject brought to life in the classroom through engaging tasks and through frequent educational visits.

We are proud to offer our students the opportunity to take part in Young Enterprise which is run as an enrichment programme in the Sixth Form where students (from all subjects) are invited to participate in forming and operating a company to make profit and compete with local schools at trade fairs.

We also operate a weekly Business Club where Year 10 pupils get together to produce products and sell them to make a profit.

The Business Department is also leading the production of the School magazine which we encourage all of our business studies students to get involved in.
