Film Studies at King Edward VI Lordswood School for Girls encourages students to watch, engage critically with and explore a wide range of films; to develop and sustain confident, personal responses to film via textual analysis; and to enjoy a variety of critically acclaimed films across the major genres. These include films from different cultural perspectives, films from the Silent Era to the present day, and different forms of film, including documentary, shorts and experimental film.

OCR’s A Level in Film Studies reinforces the relationship between academic theory and practice through a synoptic creative production and evaluation where students are offered the opportunity to engage in practical work such as the production of their own short film or screenplay.
