This morning Form VI held their assembly about Bletchley Park and coding during World War II following their recent fascinating and enriching educational trip. They explained its significance during World War II and how over 10,000.00 mostly woman worked in secret at Bletchley for overs 6 years, 24 hours a day. We learnt about the various methods used by codebreakers at Bletchley Park to decrypt Enigma messages, such as the Bombe machine developed by Alan Turing and the team.
They explained the importance of cryptography and codebreaking in wartime and its relevance in today’s world… Could you next codebreaker be you?

We even learnt that one of our girl’s great grandmother worked at Bletchley Park and kept it a secret her whole life.

Well done girls you were amazing.
