On Monday 30th April, something special took place at Wycliffe. As the school day came to a close, the Senior School campus came to life as history buffs of all ages descended on Wycliffe and made their way to the Chapel.

Tracy Borman – Sunday Times Best Selling Author and Historian – gave a fascinating talk in the stunning setting of The Chapel at Wycliffe taking the audience behind closed doors to explore the private lives, loves and scandals of the most celebrated royal dynasty in history – the Tudors.

As well as being an author and historian Tracy is joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces, notably Hampton Court and the Tower of London, giving her unparalleled access to the archives, collections and palaces in which so much of the narrative takes place. We were extremely pleased to have Tracy come to Wycliffe and give our pupils such an insight into this section of history.

An audience of over 100 members assembled, made up of both pupils and members of the public, and listened to Tracy’s talk before making their way over to School House where a book signing took place in the atrium.

Many thanks to all those who came along and made this evening such a success. Special thanks go to PASS who made this event possible.
