Economics (Sixth Form Only)

Students learn to understand the economy and its crucial importance to all our lives, analysing the interaction between its constituents: producers, firms, consumers, workers and governments. Students explore and debate how Economics affects international affairs and politics and its links with today’s key issues like globalisation, war, pollution and poverty. They are also taught to think logically and use economic theories to understand concepts such as inflation, supply and demand, unemployment, interest and exchange rates. This helps them grasp the tough choices our Government faces when steering the economy in an unpredictable world.
