Business Studies

Mrs E Houghton - 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.

The department team consists of three members of staff. These are:

Name Title
Mrs E Houghton  Head of Business 
Mr C Oliver Teacher of Business & Law
Mrs S Lees Teacher of Business & MFL
Mr A Keegan Teacher of Business & Creative Media

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.
