Students who have not tried any of the previous code breaking puzzles may need pointing towards the logo in the top left of the puzzle, it is the only clue. The code is called a “rail fence” code and rather than swapping letters for other letters it rearranges them so that words are written downwards instead of from left to right. This is made more complicated by the ‘box’ of letters then being written in a straight line. It is easily solved when the code has been written as a box again.
