Designing our very own App’s with ‘On the Beach’
Year 10 had a wonderful day on Wednesday visiting On the Beach, the UK’s leading retailer for holidays! We had a great time touring the impressive offices decked out with palm trees and hammocks.
Our Computer Science pupils learnt all about the digital skills industry, thanks to GM Digital Skills, and all the different jobs that this industry has to offer. They delved into the way businesses design App’s to make them engaging and user friendly. They then put these skills into creating their version of a successful holiday photo App. The team at On the Beach then took these sketches and produced real digital versions for our students to present back to school.
We had a great time and one pupil even asked “How can I work here?”
It’s fantastic to see our pupils engaging in such interesting opportunities.
