Media & Film
Students study media and film texts from a range of cultures and explore the representation of different social groups. Ethical and moral issues around piracy and censorship are considered and debated. Students develop good interpersonal skills in working collaboratively to produce a range of media and film texts.
There are many opportunities for extra-curricular involvement in Performing Arts. The annual school production affords the chance for students to work together and fosters an atmosphere of mutual respect and tolerance.
In Drama there are multiple opportunities for students to demonstrate creativity and share learning with others around them. Students are encouraged to join in whole class discussions and smaller group tasks to allow them to share ideas and encourage mutual respect. They are asked to reflect upon their own learning and the work of others through class work and evaluative written assignments. In class students learn and demonstrate different theatrical styles and practitioner styles from around the world. For example, students study the topic of Theatre in Education. This allows them to research and present a performance based on social and cultural issues such as bullying and the dangers of alcohol and drugs to an a particular target audience.
