Film & Media

Curriculum Intent

In the past one hundred years, the Media and Film industry has become a vitally important part of contemporary culture. It has the power to engage, captivate, educate and thrill.

Studying Media and Film increases our understanding of how things work, how people are informed- or misinformed- and demystifies the ideologies that govern all of our lives.

Our curriculum aims to broaden students understanding of a variety of different media products; allowing them to develop their analytical skills. It seeks to widen their knowledge of global cinema; and provides the opportunity to enhance their burgeoning creative and technical skills.
