Media (Minor)

Welcome to the Media Minor course! Over the next year, our aim is to give you a flavour of the 21st century skills that we feel as a department are important to you as young learners. Our emphasis is in particular, on media literacy skills such as deconstruction (analysing media texts) and then applying your knowledge to the construction of media texts like adverts and short horror films.

There is no exam associated with this course, although if you really like the learning involved with media then there is a possibility that you could switch to do the full GCSE Media course. Instead of an exam, we place the emphasis on learning, having fun and applying the skills, concepts and knowledge taken from the course to exciting productions in which you will work as a team to develop your film-making skills.
