The GCHQ National Language Competition 2023
GCHQ, one of the UK’s intelligence agencies, is running a National Language Competition from 6th-10th November aimed at pupils in Year 9 in England and Wales, Year 10 in Northern Ireland, and S3 in Scotland.
Schools can enter multiple teams of up to four pupils to take part. Over the course of five days, the teams will score points by tackling a variety of fun, immersive, language-themed challenges of varying difficulty levels hosted on a virtual platform.
All pupils will be able to take part, no prior knowledge is required, only a keenness for languages.
The winning team with the most points at the end of the competition will be invited to GCHQ’s Headquarters in Cheltenham and will be presented with their trophy!
