The Business department at the Victory academy aims to develop students’ understanding of how the local / national / global economy works through analysing economic issues, problems and institutions that affect everyday life. The aim of the Business studies curriculum is to equip students with the appropriate knowledge and skills needed to develop their employability and identify business problems and opportunities. To successfully give them the platform to become the entrepreneurs and Business leaders of the future, transforming their life chances.

Our curriculum at Victory, combines both real world case studies and opportunities for students to think like business leaders, enabling them to think and evaluate far beyond the context of the classroom. We have developed an exciting and ambitious curriculum to give all learners, the knowledge and skills to be successful in the future and proceed on to higher levels of education. The Business department go above and beyond to support students achieve the very best examination results possible. We do this by, quality first teaching, allowing students to think analytically, reach logical conclusions based on data, and empowering our students to be able to actively and accurately assess themselves, and be self-motived learners, to enable them to shape their own success once they leave our Academy.

Our Business curriculum supports the ethos of the school. Students are consistently applying the victory virtues. They are challenged to work collaboratively and think independently when engaging in all lessons and class debates. Through teacher modelling, we encourage our students to demonstrate respect, pride and belief in Business studies lessons. This allows students to express themselves in a confident and safe manner. Lesson are engaging and encourage students to develop a growth mind-set as well as equipping learners with the thinking toolkit as part of a Thinking accredited Academy.
