What exactly is a credit crunch? Why do footballers earn so much more than the rest of us? Which country will be the world's leading economy in ten years' time? How does economics affect each one of us, every day? Why isn't austerity working – or is it? Is the economy running out of control?
Studying A Level Economics encourages pupils to be inquisitive and constructive, whilst unravelling their potential in a very dynamic environment. With greater exposure to current affairs, the questions above are just a reflection of what young people want to explore today and, as a result, A Level Economics continues to be a popular choice for many pupils entering our sixth form. The department has a wealth of experience and resources to develop our students' abilities and maximise their chances of success in the external examinations. We also offer excursions, both in the UK and overseas, and the opportunity to attend lectures and competitions so that our students may benefit from an enriched, well-rounded learning experience.
