Media Studies Department Philosophy

Media Studies is offered as a GCSE option for pupils in years 10 and 11.  Through their studies, pupils are encouraged to question and evaluate the way that the media shapes the world around us, therefore developing critical thinking skills and independent thought.

Pupils approach Media Studies with a wealth of hidden and untapped knowledge. The aim of the GCSE in Media Studies is to bring that knowledge to the forefront so that pupils can use it as a foundation for study, thus encouraging confidence and enjoyment.

Pupils are encouraged to achieve their very best with every piece of work that they complete to ensure they feel safe to experiment in a positive environment.
