A Level Media Studies

The media play a central role in contemporary culture, society and politics. They shape our perceptions of the world through the representations, ideas and points of view they offer and have real relevance and importance in our lives today, providing us with ways to communicate, forms of cultural expression and the ability to participate in key aspects of society.

A Level Photography

Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. It is a powerful language which speaks to our emotions. It allows us to tell our story and show others our framing of the world around us. A Level Photography will provide opportunities to engage in a broad range of projects that encourage creativity, investigation, analysis and experimentation as a means of developing technical, creative and critical skills.

Creative Media Production & Technology Diploma

The media is a powerful entity that plays a significant role within society. The centrality of the media human experience - from the conduct of everyday life to the exercise of power, to the creation of culture - is inescapable. We live in an intensely mediated world, as philosopher Marshall McLuhan famously said, “The Medium is the Message.”
