Bletchley Park, the home of Second World War codebreakers, is to become the site of the UK’s first National College of Cyber Security.

It was at the site Alan Turing and his team of computer scientists and codebreakers unravelled the Enigma coding system used by the Nazis during the Second World War.

A new cyber security body called QUFARO@BletchleyPark, which includes experts from the National Museum of Computing and BT Security, has announced plans to create a college for 16 to 19-year-olds to learn key cyber security skills.

The college will select the most talented and skilled students and combine its syllabus with modules in complementary subjects including maths, computer science and physics.

A £5 million restoration of buildings on the Bletchley Park site will be complete before the college opens in 2018. Online courses will also be created
