Carlton le Willows Academy

Nothing but the best


Acting Head of Department: Mr Wilkins (

The media is something we encounter in our everyday lives and is embodied in the technology that we are constantly surrounded by. It is the quickest and most effective way to communicate with large audiences and has an enormous impact on our understanding of the world.

The media encompasses newspapers, magazines, television, film, radio, the internet, advertising, video games and music.

At Carlton le Willows we offer students the chance to choose Media Studies as an option at Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5.



At Key Stage 4 we offer students the opportunity to take Media Studies as an option subject from Year 10.


At Key Stage 5 we offer A Level Media Studies, which is assessed at the end of Year 13 with two exams and a coursework unit.
