New Course Booking System for InterHigh School

As part of the continued expansion of the thinkBooker software, we’re delighted to announce the launch of a course booking system for one of the leading names in online secondary education, InterHigh School.

About InterHigh

Part of UK-based Wey Education, InterHigh School provides best-in-class online schooling for Key Stage 3, 4 and A Level student from a wide variety of backgrounds.

From its base in Crickhowell in Wales and offices in London, the school operates wholly online, running a full education curriculum and lesson plans for students up to GCSE and A Levels. The classes and courses are carried out through an innovative and interactive learning portal, meaning that students located all over the world can have access to high quality teaching.

The thinkBooker Solution

As part of the wider services offered by the school, InterHigh allow for students to book additional learning courses in a selection of Key Stage 4 subject areas, initially being:

  • English Language
  • Maths
  • Biology

While the classes themselves (and all learning materials) reside upon the Canvas learning portal, there was a requirement for an online booking system to be introduced that would allow parents and students the chance to book and pay for the courses via the website.

The new booking software would need to:

  • Enable users to book each course for a period of 1, 6, 12 or 36 weeks
  • Provide a secure online payment facility
  • Integrate with the Canvas learning portal

Seamless Pathway to Learning

Making the process from searching to starting the course needed to be a seamless process.

This not only means the ability to search, select and book a place with ease and speed, but also to ensure that the details of the booking are well communicated to them via automated email, and that their details are logged into the learning portal for simple registration and course on-boarding.

For this to occur, a full integration piece was carried out between thinkBooker and the Canvas portal, ensuring both software solutions work in conjunction together to provide an end-to-end solution for both the booker and the student.

The thinkBooker Education Advantage

Moving into the education sector offers a logical step for thinkBooker.

The versatility and adaptability that the system possesses means that it can provide education establishments a variety of improved booking options, from course bookings and sign-ups, to room bookings or facilities hire into the wider community.

It’s a system than can deliver business crucial benefits to any education establishment; whether school, college, university, training organisation or online provider.

  • Improved staff efficiency and productivity
  • Better user experience that can feed into greater student satisfaction ratings
  • Greater revenue opportunities (whether utilising facilities outside of school hours or, as in the case with InterHigh, provider additional training and educational courses)
  • Improved staff satisfaction – removing laborious admin tasks so staff can get on with the rest of their work, which can feed into reduced turnover

Naturally, we’re thrilled to be working with such a well-recognised education provider such as InterHigh, and Wey Education as a whole – a name synonymous with providing world-class teaching and training in the UK and internationally.
