Creative Arts - Media Studies

The growth and impact of technology on the global workplace is the primary reason why we teach Media Studies at PHC.

A diverse subject, Media Studies is intellectually stimulating, theoretical and enriching, giving pupils a range of skills applicable to the ever-changing world of the 21st century. 

What it involves

The students critically access and interpret modern culture in a variety of mediums including:

  • Film
  • Television
  • Newspapers
  • Websites
  • Computer Design
  • Games
  • Music

The final project gives pupils the opportunity to create their own media piece. Over the years we have seen students produce a diverse range of media from trailers to advertising campaigns.

There are opportunities to participate in a range of activities including cinematography, sound, lighting and editing of School activities. The climactic point in the year for media enthusiasts is Speech Day. The School produces a film and all pupils have the opportunity to appear in, help create, or compose the score for this unique presentation.
