Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

GCSE Film Studies will appeal to students interested in all forms of film: in the past, we have focused on superheroes and non-Hollywood films, such as Yasmin. Film is an important and engaging part of many people’s lives. Those who choose to take Film Studies bring with them a huge amount of excitement and enthusiasm for film that further motivates them in their course and future careers. In this course, you will study the following. Component 1 – Key developments in US film Three US films have been chosen for this component: one pair of mainstream films for comparison and one independently produced film. The mainstream films are: • Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Siegel, USA, 1956), PG • E.T. the Extra Terrestrial (Spielberg, USA, 1982), U The independent film is: • Juno (Reitman, USA, 2007), 12 Component 2 – Global film: narrative, representation and film style Three films are studied in this component, including an English language film, a global non-English language film and a contemporary UK film (produced since 2010). The three films are: • Slumdog Millionaire (Boyle, UK, 2008), 15 • Spirited Away (Miyazaki, Japan, 2001), PG • Skyfall (Mendes, UK, 2012), 12

How will I know how I am doing?

This subject is assessed by one NEA (non-examined assessment) and two exams at the end of the academic year. Paper 1 focuses on component 1. Paper 2 focuses on component 2.

What do I need to join?

To enrol on the GCSE+ programme, applicants are expected to have a minimum grade profile of 2/3 in all subjects. Applicants will need to bring a marked piece of work to the interview. Entry tests in maths and English (and science if applying to a science subject) are required. The tests are usually held during the taster day.

How will I learn?

This GCSE course is based at our Filton campus, located in South Gloucestershire which is easily accessible from the city of Bristol by train (Bristol Parkway / Bristol Abbey Wood) and bus.

Work Experience

You will be required to do a minimum of 36 hours of work experience. This is typically done in a week during term time. The aim of work experience is to provide learners with life experience in writing an exciting CV, to help them discover what full-time employment is like and to help them begin to think of potential career paths.

What can I do next?

Students who study film studies often go on to study the subject further at A-level. Those who study film studies generally have a passion for film and media. As a result, learners progress onto further study/careers that involve media production; this can range from broadcasting to theatre production. Past film studies students have also chosen to be part of our BIPA (British Institution of Performing Arts) branch, which incorporates different levels of performing arts, up to degree level.
