Year 9 students have had the opportunity to join the HM Government’s national online programme as part of the Co-Curricular P6 timetable. 

Students have completed stage one, Cyber Assess, acting as an agent for a virtual Cyber Protection Agency attempting to prevent criminal gangs using cyber skills to do damage online.

Mrs Lunn, Leader of Computing, said:

“This group have all demonstrated excellent programming skills and Cyber Discovery is putting their teamwork and problem-solving skills to the test!  I look forward to seeing how our cyber gamers progress in the next level.”

The free Cyber Discovery programme for 13-18 year olds provides students with a taste of a career in cyber security and learn how experts play a vital role in protecting our hospitals, banks, army and police services.  It allows students to master technical computing skills and security concepts and to improve their digital skills.
