National Cipher Challenge

Ciphers are no challenge for Gemma!

The University of Southampton runs an annual National Cipher Challenge which consists of weekly challenges (A and B) where teams are required to crack two paragraphs of coded message.

Approximately 1,500 schools take part in teams of 1 to 5.  Westholme’s Gemma Wignall completed all this year’s challenges and came equal first on Challenge A – an excellent result!
