Media Studies
Key Stage 4


Media Studies is a popular GCSE subject choice at Sir John Leman High School. Students in Media Studies investigate modern media platforms including print, e-media and broadcast; exploring the likes of film, television, newspapers and magazines from concept to production.

Media students follow the AQA Media Studies specification at GCSE. This course involves 60% controlled assessment and 40% final exam. The controlled assessment element involves producing a practical piece of media work such as a film trailer or magazine.

At present Sir John Leman offers students taking GCSE Media a range of media production facilities to create media texts such as short films, wild tracks and magazine designs with an Adobe creative suite within our dedicated Apple Mac room.
