CyberFirst Girls Semi Finals

Following on from their tremendous success in the qualifying round, AGGS had very safely qualified to bring a team (Rachael E, Eloise F, Roselynn G, Sophie H) to the Semi Finals of the National CyberSecurity Centre’s (NCSC) competition; CyberFirst Girls (Year 8).

They certainly gave all of the other schools in that region a lot of moments of panic when our team shot up the leader board to first place and maintaining a consistent placement in the top 10! Overall coming out second place at this location which is a tremendous achievement! The girls were an absolute credit to the school and to themselves in tackling challenges which not only were at industry and degree level but also stumping the industry helpers from PwC!

It was very clear this has sparked a life long interest in Cyber Security and we look forward to seeing their next achievements when they progress onto the CyberDiscovery challenges next year!

A massive well done and heartfelt congratulations from Mr Starnes and a special thanks for support to Y13 helpers Bex W and Amelia E-W.
