At Rougemont, students are given the opportunity to study Business at GCSE level in years ten and eleven and Economics at Advanced level in years twelve and thirteen. Both these subjects help to equip the young person with the tools necessary for life in the modern world.
Business Studies is a contemporary and dynamic subject, which allows students to develop and apply the full range of academic skills through the study of real life business.
Economics is concerned with the way we decide how to use scarce resources to produce goods and services. The nation cannot build all the factories, roads, schools, houses and hospitals required. Individuals have to decide how to use the resources available to them, i.e. their income and wealth. The student of Economics is concerned with how these choices are made.
At GCSE we follow the OCR Business Studies specification and at A level WJEC.
