The Business and Economics department is extremely popular, with over half of Higher Line studying either one or both subjects.
Economics A Level started at Stonyhurst in 1990, and Mrs Timmins launched Business Studies A Level when she arrived in Sept 1998. In Sept 2012 we launched our first GCSE course in Business Studies for pre-IB pupils; this is again a very popular option. In 2013 we started to teach IB Economics and in September 2014 we launched the Management module in IB.
A move in 2012, gave us a new department base of 3 classrooms designed by Graham and Brown, this has given the department a fantastic environment to study in.
At Stonyhurst, we provide our students with the Business knowledge and skills they will need to become the leaders of the future.
The Economics Department helps students to understand the theories behind changes in current events impacting on house prices, oil prices and global issues such as the effect of China on the rest of the world.
