Media Studies

"Media literacy empowers people to be both critical thinkers and creative producers of an increasingly wide range of messages using image, language, and sound. It is the skilful application of literacy skills to media and technology messages. As communication technologies transform society, they impact our understanding of ourselves, our communities, and our diverse cultures, making media literacy an essential life skill for the 21st century."                                                                    

(The Alliance for a Media Literate America, 2000)  

At Chobham, Media is a constantly thriving, imaginative and highly academic subject aimed at offering plenty of innovative experiences for students of all abilities that choose to study it.

Both the KS4 and KS5 courses provide learners with key life skills for independence during presentations; collaboration during production work; literacy during analytical extended pieces; and creativity in developing their own media products.

The Media department’s goal is to continue to deliver a challenging but differentiated course to all of their learners in order to promote their individual excellence.
