Bletchley Park Visit
Year 10 students visited Bletchley Park, a historical home of the once top secret, World War Two code breakers and birthplace of modern information technology. Bletchley Park played a major role in World War Two, producing secret intelligence which had a direct and profound influence on the outcome of the conflict.
Ark Boulton students visited the site and participated in various workshops provided. We learnt how Enigma messages sent by the German Army and Air Force were decrypted, translated and analysed for vital intelligence, even having a go at some code breaking themselves! We also experienced what it was like to have lived and worked during the war.
“Students used their existing maths knowledge and applied it to the challenges provided. They saw the influence of maths and how it affects everyday life and the major influences it has had on history and the modern day.” Mr Nisar, Teacher of Mathematics.
