In Media, our intent is:
To offer students the opportunity to evaluate the role of the media in contemporary society, to recognise the value and importance of media institutions. The GCSE and A Level courses require the study of a wide range of media texts and products to encourage learners to understand how contexts, political bias and stereotyping impacts on meaning.
