Economics

Economics is offered in the Sixth Form as an A-level course. Groups will typically be six to ten in number and the Edexcel examination specification is followed.  The course provides a combination of micro-economic and macro-economic content, drawing on local, national and international contexts, and aims to provoke an interest in economic concepts and theories and their value and limitations in explaining real-world phenomena.  Economic students will also develop analytical and quantitative skills, together with qualities and attitudes that will equip them for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult and working life.  The course is structured into four themes:

1. Markets, consumers and firms

2. The wider economic environment

3. The global economy

4. Making markets work

Students are assessed by three externally examined papers. There is no coursework.  The course is split into two Programmes of study, Macro and Micro.  Both are present in the official Specification.

 Programme of Study - macro economics

 Programme of Study - micro economics
