Our Business Studies courses at Clifton are exciting, relevant and practical. We prepare our pupils for the modern business world, and help to provide business skills that will be useful throughout their lives. We study all sizes of businesses from sole traders to PLCs, we encourage creative thinking and include daily business world news in our teaching.


Clifton currently studies the AQA A level syllabus in Business Studies and has introduced the Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Advanced GCE in Business.

The pupils learn a range of business skills from financial analysis, to human resources and operations management. Pupils will be able to link ideas and to relate them to current businesses.

We also offer Edexcel GCSE Business Studies. This is a two year course that provides an introduction to business. We aim to inspire our pupils to continue to study the subject at A level and beyond, and have many former pupils working in national and international businesses. 

Why Study at Clifton College?

We welcome outside speakers to the department and enjoy taking pupils on visits to businesses, both in London and locally, such as to the Morgan Motor Company in Worcestershire.
