Year 8 Edge

Media Studies

In the Media Studies Edge sessions, pupils are transformed from media users into media producers. Working together as they learn to master newer types of technology, the pupils produce a wide range of media including:

  • Podcasts
  • Videos
  • Live online broadcasts


  • Pupils assist staff and different department around school as needed. As part of the Year 8 Leadership Programme, Year 8’s also grow a number of crops, with profits going to the school charity.


This is a fluid activity depending on the time of year.

  • Putting up a tent

  • Importance of light and framing
  • Understanding depth of field
