Bucks Free Press: Wycombe High hosts 'taking maths further' workshop Wycombe High hosts 'taking maths further' workshop

A NEWLY designated ‘maths hub’ showed pupils how maths can be used to catch criminals and manage cabin pressure during a workshop.

Wycombe High School hosted 154 Year Ten students from Wye Valley, Sir William Ramsay, John Hampden and Akeley Wood schools last week for a Taking Maths Further Day.

The initiative - sponsored by the Further Mathematics Support Programme – showed pupils how maths is used every day in a variety of professions and different ways.

Dr Richard Lissaman from the Further Mathematics Support Programme delivered the keynote address and impressed the Year Tens with his mathematical mastery and creativity.

Wycombe High School headteacher Sharon Cromie said pupils and parents “rated the event highly” with one parent stating that her child “was buzzing” and had been inspired to study maths at Sixth Form.

Wycombe High was one of 32 school around the country designated as a ‘maths hub’ and tasked with raising the standards of teaching and learning in maths in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and west Berkshire.
