Meet Tom. Tom is a former student at Codsall Community High School in Wolverhampton. He is one of the thousands of young people who has benefitted from our Inspiration programme. In the summer of 2021, he achieved an impressive 4 x A-levels at Grade A* and was accepted to read Maths at Oxford University. Tom is the first in his family to go to university and he credits one of our speakers, Dr. Nira Chamberlain as being his primary source of inspiration.

HELP IMPROVE SOCIAL MOBILITY FOR YOUNG PEOPLE LIKE TOM
Tom first came across our Inspiration programme four years ago when, as a Year 10 student, he attended an in-person talk by leading British mathematician Dr. Nira Chamberlain. Dr. Chamberlain inspired Tom to pursue his love of Maths and showed him it is possible to build a successful career focused on Maths.
Dr. Nira Chamberlain showed how useful maths is and how many possibilities it could open up to you if you chose to study it further… I would thank him for his exceptional presentation at my school and making it clear that my favourite subject was not worthless, but in fact invaluable.
