Great news, when you return to school after the September weekend the libraries opening hours will resume. We will be open from 8:25am until 4:15pm. Pop in, you know you want to!

If so, then the free online Cyber Centurion competition could be just the thing for you.
The famous American defence company, Northrop Grumman, has developed this competition (with sponsorship from the UK Government, BT, Santander and other major organisations) and they are looking for teams of up to five players to take part in their national heats (which will be mostly online).
