Media Studies

Whether it is film and TV, radio and podcasts, social media blog, vlogs and websites, or anything else in-between – media plays a central role in all of our lives. Distinguishing between truth and fiction, establishing a sense of self identity and understanding the way media texts are constructed, exhibited and consumed has never been so relevant. The study of Media at Falmouth School will develops analytical skills, communication and technological creativity.

Whether you choose to pursue a career in film, television, journalism, online media or take your skills into business – we aim to impart knowledge, inspire creativity and help you negotiate and make sense of the media saturated world around us.

In Year 9 students can opt to study a BTEC Level 2 Tech Award in Creative Media Production. This three year course allows us to study different media products across a range of platforms including computer games, vlogging, advertising, social media, film, TV, music videos and magazines. We investigate the way the media industry has changed and discuss whether society influences the media or whether the media influences society.
