Key Stage 5



In the Sixth Form we study the AQA Media Studies A Level. Specification

In Year 1 AS Level: The two units studies are Investigating Media which helps you to understand how Media texts relate to the audience, the media industry, how the media portray and represent individuals, and Creating Media which is a practical unit and encourages you to produce media texts across two media platforms chosen from print, broadcast and e-media.

In Year 2 A2 Level: Students are encouraged to examine the media and demonstrate, develop and formulate their understanding of the media and its influential role in today's society as well as debating major contemporary media issues. They will investigate a media theme/text in more depth and realise a production piece reflecting this research.
