The Media department at Capital City Academy is an increasingly popular, growing and successful department.
Media is offered to students for the first time in year 9 and students are able to take up the subject at A Level.
At A Level, students study both a theoretical and practical approach to media studies and new media. They explore textual analysis, media industries, evaluation of production work and critical perspectives.
At GCSE, students have the chance to develop a critical understanding of the role of the media in daily life. They are encouraged to develop an understanding of how to use key media concepts to analyse media products and have the opportunity for hands-on practical work.
