We are an inclusive department encouraging all students to discuss a wide range attitudes and beliefs in a safe environment, equipping them with the skills and understanding to not only express how they feel but to also empathise with opposing points of view.
We encourage our students to develop their creative and technical skills in the way they want to, within the limitations of the curriculum, but pushing beyond towards their future ambitions.
Much of the information we gain of the world around us is communicated through the mass media, in a language that can subtly deceptive. Media Studies offers an opportunity for students to step back and consider how this information is being constructed and understand how it positions them to view both the world around them and themselves. We aim to empower our students to begin questioning these representations and the aims of the powers behind them, ultimately giving them the skills and the confidence to not only understand the messages they receive but to also construct their own, giving them voice to express themselves in the digital age they are growing up in.
