As with everything this year, things went virtual this year for Sherborne’s annual Cracking the Code afternoon.

A selected group of FSM Year 6 pupils took part in the event this week. In advance of the afternoon they were sent a ‘Top Secret’ document which outlined the tasks. 

Their first mission was to find a password to prevent a computer virus being released onto the internet that would infect all computers worldwide. 

The second mission was to get involved in a series of secret agent linguistic challenges based on languages that pupils will not know. 

The FSM pupils rose to the challenge and completed both tasks with speed and efficiency! 

Even though not in person, the atmosphere in the FSM Library was electric with our pupils young minds brought alive with these ‘real’ scenarios!
