Curriculum Area Leader
“Our students thrive on a diet of literary and writing culture in the three different English A levels taught. Students who thirst for European language culture enjoy the wider horizons that Modern Languages offer. The contemporary cultures represented in today’s film and media introduce students to the diversity of values, views and opinions that surround us, are part of us, and make us who we are.
Students progress onto degree programmes that are very wide ranging. Some students will pursue their A level subject to a higher level, others will use their knowledge and study skills acquired in our subjects to follow different degree pathways.”
Studying English, Media and Film or Foreign Languages opens up a world of creative opportunities in Journalism, Publishing, TV, Radio, Film, Advertising, Marketing, Museums and Libraries, Theatre, Public Relations, Events, Travel, Teaching, Translation, to name but a few.
The figures underline the economic importance of the creative occupations to the UK, which earns an estimated £84.1bn a year just from the creative industries themselves, these industries are major producers and exporters of talent and creativity across Europe and beyond.
