Year 7 students were joined today by James Grime from the Enigma Project, part of the Millennium Mathematics Project at the University of Cambridge, aimed at inspiring students in maths, science, and history through codes and code breaking.

"I think cryptography is an excellent way of getting young people interested in Maths, Science and History and seeing a genuine WW2 Enigma machine really brings the mathematics of code breaking to life."
Simon Singh, Author of Fermat's Last Theorem and The Code Book.

“James taught us about the history of codes, including codes from the time of the Spartans all the way to World War II. He even brought in one of the few remaining original Enigma machines from World War II, used by the Germans to send top secret messages”.
