Information about the Media department

The Media department is committed to providing pupils with opportunities to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding within the Media sector. It is our aim to enable pupils to investigate areas of specific interest within the Media sector and to provide them with opportunities to link their learning to the world of work in relevant and engaging ways. We also aim to support the development of pupils’ thinking skills and personal capabilities.

Key Stage 3 Curriculum (Years 8. 9 and 10)

At Key Stage 3, Media Studies is taught within English at Holy Trinity College. Pupils have the opportunity to analyse both still and moving images. They learn to recognise different film genres and focus on how film narratives are structured. They also learn how to ‘read’ a film by identifying shot types and the effect they have.

Key Stage 4 Curriculum (Years 11/12)

At Key Stage 4, pupils are given the opportunity to complete BTEC Level 2 Award in Creative Digital Media Production. The course enables pupils to develop their understanding of the key stages involved in the creation of digital media products. Pupils also have the opportunity to produce a moving image product and digital publishing product.
