Media Studies

We aim to make our students media literate- analysts and creators rather than mere consumers!

Media Studies is a popular GCSE option subject. Students follow the AQA syllabus for Media Studies, completing three controlled assessment assignments.

All pupils learn filming skills including use of camcorder and sound equipment. As part of their Practical Production assessment, they have several opportunities to edit their own films using Apple Mac imovie application.  The school has excellent links with outside agents learning from professionals. The course is always over subscribed and the pupils who are lucky enough to take this as a GCSE have immense fun whilst learning valuable new skills which will be beneficial for their future.
