Business Studies and Enterprise & Marketing Department
Business studies at The Oaks Academy is a rich and varied subject that prepares students for all aspects of working life. We provide students with the knowledge and skills required to become entrepreneurial, employable and independent learners who are able to identify business problems and opportunities and build logical arguments for achieving specific business decisions based on knowledge and evidence from case studies. Business studies is a broad and fascinating subject that keeps evolving as the world that we live in as employers, employees and consumers does to. Business studies therefore underpins almost any role and as such can offer exciting and well-paid careers.
At The Oaks Academy we provide a high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
What is a Knowledge Organiser?
It is a document prepared by your teachers that summarises and condenses all the most vital, useful and powerful knowledge on a single page, that you need to remember to be successful.
If you use this document to help you when you study or revise it will help you to remember the key information and learn important subject specific words which will help you in your exams and assessments.
By using the Knowledge Organisers at home to support you with study it will help you when back in the classroom. Below is a list of potential ideas and tasks that you could follow to help with any subject. You will then need to find the knowledge organisers for the subjects you wish to study, and the topics that you are studying in class to complete the tasks below or those set by your teachers.
