Some 60 Year 10 students from the school were set a number of activities themed around cyber security run by education charity, The Smallpeice Trust.

Working in groups, the students used a number of techniques to decipher messages, search for information and explore various open-source intelligence sources to learn just how easy it is to find out personal data online.

A spokeswoman for the aerospace, space and security firm, which has a large base in Havant, said: ‘The students excelled and completed the challenge in record time.’
