Media & Film Studies

Media Studies

The Media and Film industries are ever expanding and highly profitable, with companies such as Apple, Sony and Disney some of the highest grossing organisations working today.  The media has a very strong influence upon us and at Maidstone Grammar School we aim to teach our students to analyse, create and evaluate media products.

A high number of our film and media student have gone on to study one of these subjects at an undergraduate level with many gaining prestige at film festivals and pursuing careers in the industry.

Film Studies is a GCSE option in Year 9 and is very popular.  A-Levels are offered in Media Studies and Film Studies and both these subjects are also very popular with a number of students opting to study both at A-Level. 

A Film should have a beginning, a middle, and an end… but not necessarily in that order
