Year 12 students visit Heals & The Design Museum!

Many thanks to Mrs Davighi for this report:

‘We were invited to tour Heals on the morning of Tuesday 27th June looking at Iconic design meeting managers and buyers from Heals to discuss how designers launch their products into industry and have success in the British market place. Students enthusiastically carried out research on Iconic design & sketched innovative designs in support of their current coursework major product design project. Heals laid on a fabulous lunch in their restaurant, along with wonderful goodie bags.

In the afternoon we went to the Design Museum to look at the galleries and the new California design exhibition. Both visits provided our students with the valuable opportunity to see innovative and creative ideas, they were sketching and gathering ideas, California exhibition was popular with the robotic self-driving car and Goggle exhibits.

Our visit was highly successful and the day was thoroughly enjoyed by both staff and students. My thanks go to Rebecca de Souza (Year 8 parent) for her support on setting up the opportunity for us.’
