Two of Hull Collegiate students are to continue their cyber security journey throughout the summer.

Pupils from Hull Collegiate School have progressed to the final stages

of the Government’s flagship cyber security training programme, Cyber Discovery. Josh (Year 10) and Zoltan (Year 12) ranked in the top 200 out of over 30,000 initial participants and, as a result, have qualified for the final stage of the programme – CyberStart Elite.  Josh will attend a three-day and Zoltan a six-day cyber camp featuring advanced hands-on challenges as well as demos and presentations from industry experts.

One of Cyber Discovery’s creators, James Lyne, Head of Research and Development at SANS Institute, a key partner behind Cyber Discovery, said: “We’ve watched the progress of all of our top students throughout Cyber Discovery, some of whom didn’t even previously realise they had an aptitude for cyber security. The Cyber Discovery team is excited to now get the chance to meet them face to face at the Elite Camps. We will be taking these students on to the next stage, teaching them what it is actually like to work in cybersecurity, using real-life examples of the problems and challenges they would be facing if they were to jump into a career right now. With the current scale of the cyber security skills gap, the more we can prepare and inspire the next generation of cyber security warriors, the better chance we have of creating a safer and better place for people to be online, do business, and go about their daily lives in the UK.”

As part of CyberStart Elite, the successful pupils – who largely completed the challenges of earlier stages of Cyber Discovery in their spare time – have the opportunity to attend one of three residential camps throughout the summer period, where they will develop further cyber security skills whilst also finding out more about jobs in cybersecurity.

Head of ICT, Graham Carmicheal  commented, “This is an outstanding achievement. Most of our GCSE and A Level Computer Science students registered, and all progressed incredibly well, with the majority reaching the third round.  I was fortunate to be able to adapt our curriculum to support the pupils throughout this process, which can be rather demanding particularly in periods of examinations.   To have one pupil make it through to the final round is outstanding, to have two is quite simply incredible. Both pupils now have the opportunity to be trained by the best of the best in terms of Cyber Security, and both have the determination and skills to go far.”

The aim of Cyber Discovery is to give young people (in schools years 10-13) an opportunity to learn the skills needed to either enter the cyber security industry at a junior level, or go on to further study in the area, and was designed to grow the UK’s cyber security workforce of tomorrow. Delivered for the UK Government by SANS Institute, the programme looks to identify those with a talent for cyber security at a younger age and to encourage them towards a career in cyber.

accolades at the palace in London by the Duke of Wessex, Prince Edward. In addition, current Head Boy Ryan will go on to collect his award at Holyrood House, Scotland later this year.

Prince Philip, inaugurated the youth awards programme in 1956. It entails 12 months of volunteering, physical and skills knowledge, an expedition and undertaking a shared activity in a residential setting.

Sally Groves, who co-ordinates the DofE awards at the school, said: “This is a huge achievement. It’s fantastic to have so many students achieve at school at this level. We’re proud of them, and they should be just as proud of themselves. In 2018, Hull Collegiate School became a licensed DofE organisation, and it’s wonderful to be able to provide this opportunity to our students as well as those from other schools .”

Ryan, Year 13 said: “Gold Duke of Edinburgh has been one of many great experiences I’ve had during my time at Hull Collegiate School and has brought me memories and friends that I can cherish for life. It builds on your skills beyond the classroom and gives you a greater self-belief which you can take on to your next steps, such as university and entering the workplace.”

Award.

The school has been shortlisted for the coveted TES International School Award for its successful Safi Coffee project which seeks to support children in Uganda by selling Ugandan coffee beans across the UK. Every penny of profit pays for the children to attend school.

Representing Hull Collegiate School, Chris Wainman, Deputy Head and Carrie Mertens, External Relations Officer, joined the other shortlisted schools and their local MPs for afternoon tea at the Houses of Parliament.

Hosted by Lucy Powell MP and TES Editor Ann Mroz, the pre-ceremony event was a chance for the shortlisted schools to celebrate their achievements and talk to MPs about their work.

Chris Wainman, Deputy Head of Hull Collegiate School, said:

“We were humbled and honoured to represent Hull Collegiate School and Safi Coffee on behalf of our pupils and the communities in the UK and Uganda.  As a school that seeks to deliver an Education with Character, we encourage our pupils to be ambitious and give them the confidence that they can achieve anything they set their minds to.  Our Safi Coffee project is a true example of our pupils’ determination to bring about change and make a real difference to children’s lives in Uganda.  Being shortlisted validates the importance and success of this project and is already inspiring our younger pupils to do something they aspire to.  Today was fantastic and now we can’t wait for the Awards Ceremony itself!”

The winners of the 10th TES Awards will be announced in a special ceremony on Friday 22 June in central London.

Xavier plays U11s & U13s for Grimsby Red Hawks. This season he emerged as Top

Goal Scorer in the U11s Northern Counties League with a cumulative tally of 50 goals. He also ranked number 5 in the U13s league with 17 goals.

Xavier has made the England U13s squad for the Portugal tour next Easter.

He absolutely loves roller hockey, he has been playing since he was four years old.

Alison, Xavier’s Mum, said ”It has been a very exciting season. We love to watch Xavier play. He works extremely hard and we are very proud of him.”

Xavier said, ”I love roller hockey. It’s a really fast paced game. I think it’s cool I’m the top scorer and I’m looking forward to the tour next year.”

Roller hockey is a fast, exciting form of hockey played on a dry surface, using quad-skates. Games are played with a keeper and 4 mid-field players.

Early records suggest the game was first played in 1878 in London. Today over 60 countries are registered with the International Roller Hockey Federation. The top teams are Portugal and Spain. France, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland and England are regular finalist in international competitions.

There are several international competitions with club and national teams, for ladies and men. Though, mixed teams are allowed for all youth games up to U17s.

Youth inter-club matches generally run for 24 minutes with a 5 minute interval. International youth games are extended to 40 minutes, the time is divided into 5 sets, with 2 minute intervals between each set.

Kicking the ball, or passing it overhead are disallowed. So is making body contact with an opponent, which is why players learn the skating manoeuvre called a ‘hockey stop’, this enables them to halt or change direction instantly while travelling at high speed.
