With an enterprise specialism, Business runs through everything we do at Harris Academy Peckham and entrepreneurial skills are embodied by all students through our LEAP (Leadership, Enquiry, Aspiration, Perseverance) ethos.
The Business curriculum is designed with this in mind and is based on what is happening in the economy, country and global arena currently at this moment. This ensures our students gain cultural capital through exposure to current affairs, whilst building the capacity to confidently discuss and articulate their views through a substantive knowledge based on previous case studies they have encountered.
It is through this dynamism within business that we encourage our students to also become adaptable and, from class based learning, develop a broad range of transferrable skills and useful knowledge in preparation for further study and/or working life.
The curriculum also places large emphasis on offering experiences which add value to any student’s learning within the subject area. The academic and corporate environments are further explored through a range of opportunities, competitions and trips organised to ensure our students are able to apply the skills they learn in the classroom beyond those parameters including the application of business studies and economic theory to the world of today. Through the course, students will develop into numerate, analytical and ambitious citizens of the world.
