Our Teaching Staff

Head of Department 


 Mr J. Hayter


The Media department offers Media at GCSE . We also run cross curricular projects and work very closely with other subjects to compliment their curriculum.


If you study Media GCSE then you will learn about feature films from a specific genre and then make a film yourself, advertising, marketing, TV Comedy and Lifestyle magazines. You’ll also have the opportunity to make your own film from a chosen genre (with a director’s commentary) as well as a number of other practical tasks chosen by your teacher. The tasks that you do will compliment your GCSE Media course and provide you with the opportunity to maximise your achievement in the subject. The GCSE Media is studied over two years (Year 10 and 11) and assessment is through controlled assessment and a final exam at the end of Year 11. Examples of our students’ work have also recently been uploaded to the OCR website ‘as outstanding exemplar material.’
