What our students say

"I chose this subject because I wanted to learn about how economies made money from tourism. What I like about this subject is that it has a business side to it you learn how companies such as zoos get their funds, where the money is spent and much more. After each lesson, we get sent PowerPoints and resources which we can use in our own time to help us do independent learning, and also help us to catch up in class if we are behind in work."
