Opening the doors to further study, University, apprenticeships and employment in the media industry. The Netherhall Media department strives to give learners hands on skills and knowledge which will help them through school, college life and beyond. Students will gain an understanding of how different media institutions operate to create products that appeal to specific target audiences; gain knowledge and understanding of the production processes and create many media products. Through this learners we believe our students will also develop transferable skills such as planning, communication, adaptability and leadership.
Students are able to explore media industries and create coursework for an eclectic mix of media platforms including: television, radio, advertising, music video, film, social media, magazines and more. The department thrives on practical based courses which allows students to develop skills and build up a portfolio of media work, whilst learning key words, theories and knowledge about the media industry.
The Media department has excellent facilities such as a radio station, professional photography and sound equipment, a Mac suite, DSLR cameras, recording devices and graphic tablets for students to use. Along with great facilities, students will take part in engaging and exciting lessons taught by innovative teachers who have worked in the Media industry. Our teachers thrive on integrating practical work and theory based lessons for our students.
No previous media or technical skills are needed for our courses, as you are taught everything you need to know to create media products. The only thing you need is an open mind, hardworking attitude and willingness to learn more. Our year 10 and 11 students are studying the Pearson BTEC in Creative Media Production which allow students to make their own magazine, plan a music video, analyse and develop ideas for short film and explore many other media products.
Media gives students the ability to work in the vast industry of media, however, it also creates the pathway towards further courses at A-Level such as Digital Media, Art, Photography, Law, Film, Sociology, English Literature and Language and Criminology.
