Top Achievers Programme Event – Saturday 8th July 2023
The TAP event on Saturday was a great success. There were 50 students from the current years 10-12 in attendance accompanied by their parents/carers so around 100 in total.
The keynote speaker was Richard Hopkins, Head of the Department of Agriculture, Health, and Environment at the Natural Resources Institute. His talk showed how he has combined biology, chemistry, and maths to come up with innovative ways to prevent insect-borne killer diseases like malaria, sleeping sickness and yellow fever.
Sarah Large (from Mansfield College Oxford) ran great sessions on applying to Oxbridge and early entry.
David Vaccaro, Wycombe Abbey’s Director of Learning, and Innovation at Wycombe Abbey School gave two maths masterclasses for Year 11 and 12 students.
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this wonderful event.
