Business Studies

Head of Business Studies: Mrs D Grannell

Business courses at All Hallows are a very popular option and pupils achieve excellent results.

The courses currently on off are GCSE Applied Business Studies and Business Enterprsie.

Business lessons are a mixture of learning and researching about real businesses. We learn in different ways, through class work, group work, presentations, research and importantly independent learning.

We have links with businesses such as Tesco, DWF Law, Walkers and Chester Zoo. We are always looking for businesses interested in working with our pupils to bring the world of business to life.
