Film lessons engage and encourage co-operative working and respect for others. Team and paired work encourage pupils to develop their own ideas and become more self-confident in directing their own learning. We encourage students to challenge and question texts and ideas; to consider alternative points of view and arrive at their own conclusion. Students are supported through personalised planning, marking and tracking, ensuring that every student succeeds. In this way, all pupils should derive a sense of worthwhile achievement and personal satisfaction from their work in Film Studies.
Film Studies offers students the opportunity to experience films from different backgrounds and contexts, that they may not have experienced so far. We offer students a variety of genres and filmic styles that will challenge and teach students to be independent, critical thinkers and ultimately more open to ideologies and film experimentation.
