A team of talented year 11 mathematicians have won the Alan Turing Cryptography Competition run by the University of Manchester. Helen, Miranda, Amy and Hannah defeated teams from schools around the country, breaking a variety of codes posted online faster than anybody else, so fast in fact that one of the maths lecturers setting the codes sought out the team to ask how they managed to solve them so quickly! They received their prize at the cryptography day hosted by the University, where they underlined their dominance of the competition by winning the live cryptography competition, becoming the first team to win both the online and live competitions in the same year. Well done girls!
