Media Studies is an exciting subject that enables students to recognise and analyse the ways in which the Media industry works. 

As part of both the GCSE and A Level courses, students have to produce their own media texts and have the opportunity to develop their IT skills. Students use Photoshop, iMovie, iPhoto, Appleworks and Word. Typical projects could include producing magazine covers, print and TV  adverts, web page design and music videos.
