Year 10 Visit to Bletchley Park
On Thursday 16th June 40 pupils and 5 staff took part in a Maths/Computer Science trip to the fascinating Bletchley Park. During the course of the day they learnt about the work of the code breakers during WWII, took a tour of the site to learn about the work at Bletchley, visited the Intelligence Factory with interactive exhibits where they could dress as the staff and complete tasks like radio operators, took part in a codes and ciphers workshop where they were shown the inner mechanism of the real Enigma machine ( worth £250,000!!) and visited Alan Turing's office. All followed by ice cream by the lake! The students were a pleasure to take and a repeat visit is already being planned for next year.
