Little research has been done into the effectiveness of using film as a teaching tool. This article reports on a three month research project which examined the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of student learning outcomes of students between the ages of 14-16 years of age, in a British secondary school. The report aligned the findings with Bloom’s Taxonomy and Kolb’s Learning Cycle to explain the empirical observations of colleagues in the English teaching profession. While the report does not fill the void in the film pedagogy research entirely, it does offer an in-depth look at three intended learning outcomes for a personal, health and social education lesson and how films help students meet the projected learning outcomes.
