On the 8th of February, the Computing & Maths students in year 13 spent a pleasant day at the home of the World War 2 code breakers, Bletchley Park.
The day started with a fantastic talk on the Story of Enigma, involving a lesson in code-breaking and the chance to see a real-life Enigma machine in use.
Some of the secrets were revealed during a fascinating tour of the site. A guide explained the different roles involved that made Bletchley such an important factor in winning the war.
Later in the day, we got the chance to explore the whole of the Bletchley site, including the Bletchley Park mansion, and a replica of the Turing Bombe which was used to crack the Germans’ Enigma code.
A huge thank you to Mr. Simcock Mr. Johnson, Miss Evans, and Mr. Tomlin for volunteering to take the students on the trip. And also, to all the students for taking part and engaging in all the activities available.
