Media Studies is one of the most popular courses taken by students and when the GCSE course is taken alongside GCSE English courses, statistics suggest that grades are improved across both subjects due to the supportive and complementary nature of text analysis.
The Media Department is judged to be good with outstanding features.
Media Studies builds on and supports several subjects that students will have studied at Key Stage 3.

We would recommend it to other people.” GCSE Media Studies: “It is my favourite lesson.
