Head of Department – Business Studies
Mrs Kate Wright
Joined Stonyhurst in 2000
Mrs Kate Wright teaches GCSE, AS and A2 Business Studies and the Extended Project Qualification. She also helps to coach tennis in the summer term.
Before Stonyhurst, Mrs Wright taught in a Catholic boys’ state school and a girls’ independent day school. She loves teaching at Stonyhurst as it allows her to teach boys and girls from all over the world. Her favourite topics to teach are Break-even analysis and the Marketing Mix.
Mrs Wright runs a number of extra clinics to support pupils and these have proved both successful in terms of exam results and popular with EAL pupils who need language support. She is also responsible for the Gifted and Talented programme for the department, allowing the most able pupils in the department to be challenged and enriched.
Mrs Wright enjoys travelling and has recently visited Hong Kong where she was able to meet up with past and present Stonyhurst pupils and parents.
