A LEVEL BUSINESS AT KING GEORGE V COLLEGE
Our aim is to study all the major aspects of the corporate world. This is not a dry factual study - we concern ourselves with how real businesses are making decisions today and focus on real life case studies. Due to its relevance in modern society and the breadth and depth of study, Business is an ideal subject for preparation for many degree programmes. It is also a valuable subject for employment as you will have a firm grounding of the day-to-day running of a business.
With 100% pass rates, high grades well above national averages, and excellent employability skills it’s no surprise that our Business students go on to do some wonderful things! Students who have completed the course are currently engaged in a wide variety of further study and employment including Higher Apprenticeships with the Civil Service, Santander and Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC). Over 40% of students love the course so much that they choose to study a related degree at university (well above average). Our alumni are currently studying degrees in Business Management, Marketing, International Business, and International Disaster Management at Universities including the University of Liverpool, Bristol, and Durham.
5 GCSEs at grades 9-5 (A*-B) including English Language and a 4 or above (Grade C) in GCSE Maths.

This includes many opportunities for learning outside of the classroom via regular guest speakers and annual trips to Liverpool, London, and New York to support your learning!
