Film Studies

The A Level in Film Studies is designed to deepen students’ understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of film, the major art form of the twentieth
century, and one developing new modes of expression and exhibition in the first decades of the twenty-first century. Students will study film deriving
from a variety of production contexts and experienced in a variety of viewing situations. They will also engage with a wide range of different kinds of films, developing skills of observation, critical analysis and personal reflection, as well as developing their creativity and practical skills, either in audio-visual or written form.

What will I learn?

“I joined the College to study GCSEs, including Chemistry, English and Maths. I wanted to work in veterinary science, so I then progressed to a range of science-based A Levels, and after gaining A grades in all subjects, I was able to continue onto a Veterinary Science degree at Cambridge University. I can now look forward to a career in something I’m passionate about, and I can’t wait to get started.”James Hawkesby
