Computer Science Gets Competitive

Alan Turing,

The Alan Turing Cryptography Competition

Alan Turing was a code breaker, mathematician and founding father of computer science who made a unique impact on the history of computing, computer science, artificial intelligence, developmental biology and the mathematical theory of computability. Do you like breaking codes and solving ciphers?   Would you like the chance to use your mathematical skills to win some great prizes? Then the Alan Turing Cryptography Competition is for you! Now in its ninth year, the Alan Turing Cryptography Competition is aimed at secondary school children up to Year 11. You don’t need to be a computer whizz or a mathematical genius — you just need to keep your wits about you and be good at solving problems! The competition is organised by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Manchester and sponsored by Skyscanner. It starts on Monday 27th January and you can enter be visiting: or speak to Miss Power and/or Mrs Edwards. The Holy Trinity Academy registration code for the Alan Turing Cryptography Competition is 2ZKHGE which is required to set up your team (maximum of 4). Good Luck !

Update: 18th October

We have had a confirmed Covid case in year 8. All year 8 must self- isolate whilst we conduct the contact tracing process. Details for Tuesday will be released on Monday afternoon. All pupils should use show my homework to access their work.

All students in year 7 will be in self isolation until Tuesday 27th October.

Students who travel on the A Star bus will also isolate until Tuesday 27th October

Students who travel on the Borland bus will isolate until 23rd October. They will be in school on 23rd October.

Further details have been sent to affected students via Edulink.

Many thanks,
