GCSE Media Studies is a two-year course which enables our pupils to develop and demonstrate skills of enquiry, critical thinking, decision-making and analysis. Over the two years, our pupils acquire knowledge and understanding of a range of media industries, develop critical understanding of the role of media in society, both currently and historically. Pupils are encouraged to actively comment on, question and challenge media constructs they are exposed to confidently, fluently and critically. The course also contains a practical element (Non-Exam Assessment); whereby pupils are required to create their own media products.
Media Studies also allows our pupils to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and socially by encouraging them to think openly about contentious and controversial media-driven stereotypes.
Finally, Media Studies also prepares our students for the hugely popular range of related courses in further education and equips them with a variety of valuable transferable skills for the rapidly growing Media influenced job-market.
