In Years 10 and 11, students study the Eduqas GCSE specification for Media Studies. Over the two years, students study different media industries, such as the newspaper industry, the film industry and the music industry. Students will learn about the evolution of the crime television genre, studying ‘The Sweeney’ and ‘Luther’ in detail. The course also involves a 30% coursework component, which requires students to design their own DVD cover and marketing poster for a film concept. We teach the key skills required for analysing any media product: media language, representation, audiences and context.
