Bletchley Girls: Battle for Equality

A Limited Edition Virtual Learning Session

Inspired by and developed as a companion session to playwright Lou Beckett’s Bletchley Girls radio play (available as part of the Gloucester History Festival from mid-September) this Special Virtual Learning Session from Bletchley Park takes you deeper into some of the themes explored throughout the three episodes. Click the button below to listen to a trailer for the Bletchley Girls Audio Play:

Designed to be experienced after you’ve listened to the audio play, during the online session we’ll introduce you to Bletchley Park with a virtual tour so that you can get to know where Mavis, Margaret and the other characters worked.

You’ll understand the importance of their work by stepping into their shoes and getting stuck-in to a codebreaking and direction-finding activity based on a real key event in World War Two: just one of many directly impacted by the work of Mavis Batey and her colleagues!

Finally, we’ll compare the past with the present before leaving you with some resources and ideas for continuing your own investigations into the themes uncovered by Bletchley Girls.

Who is it for?

The Bletchley Girls: Battle For Equality Virtual Learning session is most suitable for all students between 11 – 14 years old (UK Key Stage 3, years 7 – 9)
