Business & Communication Systems

Business and communication systems is an option that students can take from year 9. It comprises both practical and theory work which is assessed in three separate ways:

  • Students learn the practical ICT applications of business which is examined practically on the computer (35% of final assessment)
  • Students learn how businesses operate and communicate, they go on to sit a written paper which tests their knowledge (40% of final assessment)
  • Controlled assessment – students demonstrate their practical understanding of business in an exam-board set task (25% of final assessment)

Business Studies is a popular subject at Buile Hill and gives students the opportunity to gain a broad business knowledge from..... why businessess exist, through to topics such as HR and Marketing.


Pupils will be expected to complete one piece of homework a week, as per the school calendar.
