Business and enterprise are at the heart of national growth and development. Here at Currie we aim not only to develop the pupils’ insight into the economic world in which they live, but also to equip them with the analytical and practical skills to give them a stake in the economic system. This involves developing a spirit of enterprise, challenging the pupils to think, develop and communicate their ideas effectively and put them into practice.
Learning & Teaching
Teaching begins in S1 and S2, where pupils are introduced to Business Management and Digital Literacy (course outlines are below). In S3, pupils may select Administration & IT or Business Management (course outlines are below). These courses, along with Economics, can be studied at Higher in either S5 or S6, with Business Management offered at Advanced Higher level to S6 pupils (course outlines are below).

Entrepreneurial talent is being developed through a mini-enterprise activity in S2, and then, more substantially, with the Young Enterprise Scheme allowing S5/6 pupils to take full control of a business. We are very proud of the success of our pupils in all of these areas (see above picture).
