We are proud to announce that the Hoe Valley Coding Club has entered a National Cipher Challenge set up by the University of Southampton. So far we have competed in two rounds and our placings have been excellent!
In round 1 Part A we came in joint 1st
In round 2 Part B we were 1024th place out of 1366 entrants
In round 2 Part A were were again joint 1st
In round 2 Part B were 941st out of 1106 entrants.
This Challenge is meant for all years in Secondary schools so the fact that we have managed to place 1st in the first two rounds is amazing.
The plan is to take part in this event every year with the veteran students taking the less experienced students under their wings and creating their own teams next year.
