I like the varied aspects of English, this year we’re studying a novel and doing a Shakespeare play. The varied aspects keep you intrigued and helps to broaden your knowledge on a much wider range of literary text.
I didn’t pick up media until quite late in year 12 because I initially took biology, chemistry and English. I found I didn’t get on with chemistry very well, but I continued it through. I soon went back and spoke to staff and said that I would like to have the opportunity to do media and the teachers were incredibly supportive, as was Gemma (Head of 6th Form College). The staff put in so much time and effort to teach me on top of what they were already teaching, I was able to do the course outside of lessons. I can’t thank them enough for doing that. I’ve continued media through to this year and without their support I wouldn’t have been able to do it at all. It’s my definitely my favourite subject and I just have such an interest in media theory. I love it.
