Media

The school has a proud tradition over many years of excellence in the Arts. Initially we were chosen to deliver the Creative Media Diploma which enabled us to install state of the art facilities including our Mac Media Suite. Students now have the opportunity to benefit from this equipment when studying GCSE Media.
