Media

Media studies gives students the opportunity to examine an industry that is held responsible for everything from youth crime to the results of elections.  It is also a key factor in any business or job role.  Students discuss key media debates like how body image in adverts or violence in computer games affects the audience.  This will give you an insight into how the media influences and impacts on everyday life and help you learn how to produce your own media products/texts.

Students will learn how to professionally plan and research media products in order to develop ideas and create different media productions; developing your filming skills, editing skills and print design skills.  This could range from Music videos to Horror film trailers.

We currently follow the WJEC GCSE specification.  More detailed information can be found at http://www.wjec.co.uk/
