The department has a very strong academic record both at GCSE and A-Level, with many A-Level Economists applying for Economics degrees.

Examination results are excellent.

Enrichment is at the heart of the department and we would like to hear from candidates who see the value in connecting students with industry through guest speakers and visits and who would like to build on these links within the taught curriculum as well as building a strong co-curriculum offer.
