Media and Film Studies

Media and Film Studies boy and girl media studies lesson

“Media provides an insight into the modern world and issues that are current and relevant to us now.”

Year 11 student

Media Studies and Film Studies (two GCSEs) gives students the chance to explore the media they consume and think critically about it. This helps students to understand how young people can be manipulated by media as well as how it is created. 

Media and Film Studies is delivered by the English faculty who are specialised in this area. Students experience a range of different media from newspaper articles to film trailers. This provides a basic knowledge and understanding of the subject which can be developed to a more advanced level if chosen as an option in Years 10 and 11.
