Media Studies Department

Team Leader:

Rhia Thomas 


Subjects Offered: 

Media Studies covers a diverse range of media types. The course has been enjoyed by previous students as we look at music videos, horror trailers, TV crime drama, advertising as much more. 

The course is 60% coursework and 40% exam.

A high chunk of the coursework mark comes from pupils creating their own media type. In the past we have had pupils create their own horror posters or their own magazine cover. 

The exam topic changes every year. This year pupils will look at advertising in the exam. One part of the exam is visual based, where they answer questions based on an advert selected by the WJEC. The second part is a creative piece where pupils design/ create a new piece of media.
