Work with Love

Silence is Golden?

Silence is Golden? Or…the beginnings of the ‘Golden Age of Hollywood’! Year 13 Film Studies student have begun their approach to learning the production contexts of the Silent Cinema movement for the A level exams.

‘Silent’ film is often a mis-nomer; there is of course, the use of non-diegetic music to enhance the visuals on screen.

Our first lesson invited students to think beyond dialogue and to experiment with the methods available to directors at the time: camerawork, sound effects and performance.  Plus, some bonus use of doorbell sound effects!

Our Values



Prayer & Faith




We must ‘Go and do likewise’, to serve the needs of others.

We are ‘One Body in Christ’, inclusive and welcoming to all.

We are called to ‘be constant in prayer’ to discern God’s love. Students are invited to faith, participating in regular acts of workshop as forms, classes, year groups, and a school.

Students are expected to be hopeful, showing respect to themselves, their peers, teachers and the environment.

Students are expected to be charitable through acts of service in school and the wider community.

Students are expected to maintain a scholarly attitude in all lessons and work to the best of their ability and engage where they can in extra-curricular activities.
