Media Studies

"Media literacy empowers people to be both critical thinkers and creative producers 
of an increasingly wide range of messages using image, language, and sound. It is 
the skilful application of literacy skills to media and technology messages. As 
communication technologies transform society, they impact our understanding 
of ourselves, our communities, and our diverse cultures, making media literacy 
an essential life skill for the 21st century."                                                                    

(The Alliance for a Media Literate America, 2000)  

 

At Chobham, Media is a constantly thriving, imaginative and highly academic subject aimed at offering plenty of innovative experiences for students of all abilities that choose to study it.

Both the KS4 and KS5 courses provide learners with key life skills for independence during presentations; collaboration during production work; literacy during analytical extended pieces; and creativity in developing their own media products.

The Media department’s goal is to continue to deliver a challenging but differentiated course to all of their learners in order to promote their individual excellence.

Key Stage 4

In Year 9 students are offered the GCSE AQA Media Studies course which will allow them to study a range of engaging modules from Computer Gaming to the Music Industry.

In Year 10 – 11 students continue with their GCSE in Media studies by studying modules on Film and working towards their understanding of Media industries by preparing for an exam to take place in year 11.

Key Stage 5

In Year 12 students are offered the Level 3 BTEC in Creative Media Production and have the option of a Subsidiary Diploma (1 year, 1 A level); a Diploma (2 years, 2 A levels); or an Extended Diploma (2 years, 3 A levels)

They will study a range of media sectors from Journalism, Graphic Design, Filming, Semiotics, Marketing, Photography and representation.

The course offers a rich experience for all students, as they are able to make connections with Google, Universal Music and the Independent to name a few.

In Year 13 the students who are studying Diploma and Extended Diploma courses continue their studies but are prepared for life in the industry by obtaining runner jobs, publishing their own articles, having their own radio shows and interviewing well known celebrities and personalities.
