Media at Royal Russell

Media Studies is a hugely popular and successful subject at A level within Royal Russell School.  Due to this success, a new GCSE Media qualification will launch in 2017.

The course involves a mixture of theory and practical work.  All our students learn how to produce music videos, film trailers and adverts using a range of technologies.
