Cheshire maths hub is honouring code-breaking genius Alan Turing

Can the code-breaking genius Alan Turing inspire mathematicians of the future

A North West maths hub is changing its name to honour the wartime maths genius Alan Turing who became an academic at the University of Manchester's Department of Mathematics after World War Two.

It also marks a newly established link-up with the Turing Trust, an organisation run by Alan Turing's family to provide computers in developing nations.

Lady Nicola Turing, wife of Alan Turing's nephew, Sir Dermot Turing, will officially launch the newly named Turing NW Maths Hub at the Ashton on Mersey School in Sale, Cheshire.

There'll be a formal naming ceremony which will showcase training programmes and there'll be the chance to observe teaching for mastery in maths. It's one of 37 specialist Maths Hubs across England.
