This paper analyses the organization of the Government Code and Cypher School (GC CS) at Bletchley Park during the Second World War. The complexities and peculiarities of the organization are overviewed and a periodization provided. The main focus is on the pivotal 1942 reorganization, which is explained in terms of the changing scale of GC CS following the successful attack on the Enigma machine cipher, and in terms of organizational politics. The more minor 1944 reorganization is also described.
