We offer A level qualifications in Business alongside highly popular extra-curricular activities, including the Young Enterprise Company Programme.
In the Business course, developing a broader understanding of how businesses work, applying key business concepts to a variety of contexts competently and being able to handle complex business data and information is essential, however, having studied Business GCSE is not a prerequisite.
The Business course enables students to effectively prepare themselves for work-life and higher education in any field with attendance to conferences, trips to interesting venues such as The Museum of Brands, development of core skills such as critical thinking, enquiring and communicating.

"I am studying A levels in English Literature and Language, Geography and Business Studies. The balance of freedom and lessons here at Coombe Sixth Form has allowed me to find out how I work best and the staff have encouraged me along my journey, helping me discover what I'd like to do in the future - I hope to study Theology at University before entering the Youth Ministry or teaching."
Head of Department: Mr A Sundaram

Scientists, engineers and artists will all need to understand the basics of how to run an organisation – the combination of specialist qualifications and commercial knowledge will become vital to success. In business, you make decisions, take action and monitor results- and each case is different.
