Media & Film


Welcome to Media and Film Studies. The Head of Department is Mr B Read ably supported by Mrs L Silvester (Director of Curriculum and Timetabling) and Mr G Bone (Director of Marketing and Communications)

We are based in the Sixth Form block and have three specialist classrooms with wide ranging facilities including Apple Macs, green screen technology and a full Adobe design software package. 

We have enjoyed many successful years delivering wide ranging topics in an ever evolving subject. Currently we teach:

  • AQA GCSE Media Studies;
  • AQA A Level Media Studies;
  • WJEC/EDUQAS GCSE Film Studies;
  • WJEC/EDUQAS A Level Film Studies

We are proud of our record for successful results but equally for the number of students who choose to pursue Media and Film at college, university or in the workplace. In addition to academic delivery, we offer enrichment through visits to the Sky Studios, Warner Brothers studios, the BFI and local cinemas.
