Mrs Roberts says: “As team leader, I witnessed Caesar Cyber display outstanding teamwork skills, resilience and determination in pushing forward despite having a major technical issue that prevented them from completing one third of the challenge. Despite this they won Second Place. What a show of sheer grit and resolve … I am incredibly proud!”
With 61 points, the boys came very close to the team who won, with 67 points, and far ahead of the team in third place.
“Caesar Cyber was one out of just five teams that had made it to the Finals. They are a resilient and determined bunch and already making plans to compete as Seniors next year. They will be competing against Sixth Form students this time, and the challenge is incredibly high, but I think they have what it takes … ” Mrs Roberts.
