The Aims 

The Bletchley Park Trust firmly believes that museums can contribute to every stage of educational development, for individuals and groups, through life-long learning.  The Trust aims to deliver high-quality educational provision and resources to the community it serves, regardless of peoples’ age, ability, ethnic background, faith or sexual orientation.

We aim to:
Ensure that the heroic work of the people who served at Bletchley Park during World War Two is remembered, and to promote understanding of the importance of their achievements to the war effort; encourage life-long appreciation of and enthusiasm for the disciplines of science, technology and mathematics that were essential to the work of the Codebreakers; and inspire young people to choose career paths that enable them to develop and use related skills.
