Teaching & Learning
Welcome to the Media Studies department!
Media Studies can be opted for in Year 9. In Year 10, there will then be the choice of taking the subject at GCSE or taking our vocational BTEC route. Both options give students the chance to learn both theoretical and practical aspects of the subject - they are just assessed in different ways. Both routes also give students access to studying the subject in our Sixth Form where we currently offer A-Level Media Studies.
At GCSE and A-Level, we follow the Eduqas specification and the BTEC course is awarded by Pearson and is part of the new Technical Awards and is called Creative Media Production.
We are a well sourced department and have an IT suite that has Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements which allows students to learn how to create and edit media products. We also have a range of equipment that students can borrow to help them complete their work.
