Commercial Studies

Commercial Studies

Our faculty is made up of five totally elective subjects: Commerce and Global Studies in Years 9 and 10 and Business Studies, Economics and Legal Studies in Years 11 and 12.

Our students are guided on a journey that is as much about exploring and developing their own learning styles and methods as it is about the relevant local, national and global topics we cover. Our courses are fundamentally about the world in which we live and they are designed to encourage our students to become more informed and effective global citizens.

Real world learning

As you browse through our department's site, you will catch a glimpse of the wide range of issues that are examined by our classes. Our subjects have something to offer all students – from the practical nature of Commerce and Business Studies, with their grounding in real world situations, to the challenging issues encountered in Legal Studies, the focus on critical thinking and independent learning in Global Studies, through to the theoretical foundations of Economics. The Department of Commercial Studies provides students with a myriad of opportunities to encounter and understand their world.

Our department is blessed with an incredibly dedicated, experienced and highly qualified staff who not only strive for academic excellence from our students but also take an active role in their personal development.

Please take the time to see what we offer and feel free to contact me if you need any further information.
