The Alan Turing Cryptography Competition

Do you like breaking codes and solving ciphers?

Can you, and your friends, discover the secret of the Lovell legacy?

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 third year, the Alan Turing Cryptography Competition is aimed at secondary school children up to Year 11 (England and Wales), S4 (Scotland), Year 12 (Northern Ireland). 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 School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester.
