Through a combination of theoretical and practical learning, Media Studies offers an essential insight into our place within the modern world, how we are perceived and how we perceive others. In this 21st century learning environment we aim to enrich students' learning through innovation, opportunity and creativity, encouraging a balance of academic excellence and rich personal development.
Our ambitious, knowledge-rich curriculum explores the ever-evolving industries of film, television, radio, the news, magazines, advertising, branding and social/online media. Students will develop knowledge of digital literacy and actively engage with the wider world through investigative analysis, theory and industry-standard hands-on production. When studying Media we encourage learners to be aspirant high-achievers, engaging with social, cultural and political ideas, ensuring they become independent thinkers, exploring their learning beyond the curriculum. Through this pursuit, students are instilled with the values that our students need to empower them with purpose and direction to become positive influencers on the local, national and global stage.
Social media is more about sociology and psychology than technology.
