Curriculum

The curriculum means more than just lessons. It includes the atmosphere, attitudes and relationships, which create a high quality of life in school as a whole.

Our curriculum aims to motivate pupils, improve their attentiveness and allow them to make good progress across all subjects. Other aims of our curriculum are:

  • To provide a caring and supportive school experience.
  • To promote equality of opportunity regardless of gender, race or culture through the content and delivery of the curriculum.
  • To prepare students not only for the world of work, but also for leisure, which will give them personal satisfaction.
  • To provide opportunities both in the curriculum and extra curricular activities which will enable the pupils to take responsibility for themselves and develop their self-respect and confidence.

The grading system at The Business School

Promotion to the Upper Grade

Students must secure a 50% average to be eligible for promotion to the next form. Students securing a 0 – 44% average score will be required to repeat that grade.

Students who receive an average of 45 to 49% will be promoted on trial. The student’s performance is reassessed at the end of the first term in the next grade to determine whether he/she can remain there.
