History came to life on Thursday 26th May as Year 8 pupils from the Prep and Senior schools enjoyed a fantastic day joint trip to Bletchley Park.
The pupils learned how enemy messages were intercepted and deciphered during World War II. They also visited the original huts and mansion where Alan Turing and his colleagues would have worked during World War II.
During an interactive code-breaking workshop, some pupils demonstrated excellent deciphering skills. The trip’s highlight was the opportunity to cypher a message on an original Enigma machine.
Mr Goodhew, Head of Mathematics, said: “Our trip to Bletchley Park was enjoyed by pupils and staff in equal measure. We look forward to future trips here.”
