Bletchley Park


The Computer Science department took a group of pupils to visit Bletchley Park (WWII code-breaking facility and a major contributor in the birth of modern computing). 

Bletchley Park was the workplace of the man considered to be the father of modern Computing, Alan Turing. A comprehensive history is provided on the site and it is home to some of the cleverest and most resourceful machines and systems ever created by the hand of man. 

The group had the opportunity to take a glimpse of how the work done there in the 1940s affected the outcome of history and also our daily lives. 

In addition to the obvious benefits to the computer science students, one of the primary aims of this trip was to help them foster a cross-science sense of community and a strong peer-support network between our older students.

Overall a fantastic trip.
