Bletchley Park Code Breakers

The Oldham Academy North has had an exciting day welcoming Bletchley Park to work with our students on code breaking under the Bletchley Park’s Ultra Bursary Programme.

The students have had the exceptional experience of working with an original Enigma machine from World War II, which also featured in the film The Imitation Game (2014) starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 were involved in the day and each received a personalised session throughout the day as well as a combined assembly where they gained information about the history of Bletchley Park and the enigma machine.

This exciting learning prospect will further develop opportunities to engage with schools and students from across the country.
