PUPILS from OEBZF TEBIR ABEG U turned secret squirrel at a special code breaking event on July 5.
For those not fluent in shift cipher, that means students at North Bromsgrove High School hosted the event at their school which saw year seven students from Parkside, Catshill, and St John’s schools challenged to decipher hidden messages.
Head of maths at the school, Nick Wynne, said the event was inspired by a trip to Bletchley Park where enigma was famously broken during the Second World War.
“It was lovely to see pupils from different schools joining in together to solve the different codes and they really enjoyed themselves.”
They took a variety of spoken codes including pigeon cipher, morse code and semaphore.
