Media Studies is an exciting and engaging way for students to understand the world around them. For GCSE Media, students will be creating their own products such as CD covers and Soap Trailers. They will gain an understanding of what makes shows such as Coronation Street and the X Factor so popular as well as understanding the music industry, the print industry and much more. Over two years students will do three Controlled Assessments; each has a practical element and a written element and they will complete an exam at the end of the two years. Media Studies is for students who are creative, passionate and those wanting to learn more about the world we live in. The course is an insightful part of their academic journey giving the opportunity to experience areas of Sports Media and exciting avenues through which they can create professional pathways within the Media Industry itself.
