CyberFirst Girls

Teacher of IT, Ms Ashraf, tells us about the Cyberfirst Girls’ Competition:
“The competition was based on computer science for Year 8 girls around the country. Four of our Year 8 girls, Amani, Amy, Ilham and Isobel, qualified for the semi-finals after a seven day online qualifier round competing against their fellow Year 8 peers who also did very well during that stage of the competition. The girls did exceptionally well and were then invited to the online semi-finals. Out of thousands of schools, they qualified along with the 126 schools that competed live all over the country on semi-final day. The girls competed using an online platform especially designed for problem solving. They had answer questions related to Cyber security, Networks and Coding. We are so proud of how well the girls did on the day – they reached in the top 10 on the scoreboard. The head of the GCHQ UK closed the competition with excitement for the future potential of the girls.”
