Department Vision

An Introduction to Business and Digital Media

We are committed to raising attainment which has helped to build a culture of achievement within the faculty. Business, ICT and Digital Media pupils want to learn and are not content unless they are achieving their full potential.  We enable our pupils to become lifelong, enterprising, independent learners, whom are able to take risks and assume responsibility confidently.  We ensure pupils develop a commercial awareness and the knowledge and understanding to pursue a career in Business, ICT or Digital Media. Teachers in the faculty understand the importance of celebrating their pupils’ successes and place particular emphasis on this. There is a departmental drive on making pupils become independent learners which is done through pupils using more sophisticated styles of learning and enjoying high levels of motivation for the subjects. To support this we encourage all of our pupils to attend our after school intervention, trips, visits and workshops delivered by our guest speakers linked to related careers.

In KS4, the Learning Journey starts by building up core knowledge, skills and becoming familiar with the specialist vocabulary before starting their Business GCSE or BTEC in Creative Digital Production. There is a focus on publishing media to allow students to maximise the technology available and to develop their skills and creativity in a controlled and safe setting. Pupils in all three subjects are encouraged to support each other and to develop their own presentation skills throughout the curriculum so that they are confident and prepared for employment or Higher Education. In KS5 we offer a diverse curriculum giving students the opportunity to continue their Learning Journey on an academic or vocational pathway so every pupil is able to realise their potential.
