Business & Economics

At King Edward’s, our social sciences department encourages pupils to explore Business Studies and Economics.

Business Studies

Business Studies encourages critique and evaluation of business practice: pupils explore different theories of business, models and structures of enterprises and organisations and elements such as risk assessment, marketing and decision making.

We offer A-level (AQA) Business at King Edward’s in the Sixth Form. No prior knowledge is required, although we recommend that pupils have Grade 5 or above in both English and Maths at GCSE or an equivalent qualification.


Economics at King Edward’s encourages pupils to use a range of economic models and theories to evaluate and explore economic policies in the context of markets, the national economy and international trade.

Economics is a popular option at A-level (Edexcel). No prior knowledge is required, although GCSE English and Mathematics Grade 5 or an equivalent qualification are recommended.

A one-year GCSE Economics IGCSE (Cambridge) course is also available to Pre-Sixth Form pupils.
