Year 8 are inspired by 'Out of this World' talk from first British astronaut in Space, Helen Sharman

The Year 8s visited Alderley Edge School for Girls and had the opportunity to listen to an “Out of this World” talk from Helen Sharman CMG OBE. Helen was the first British astronaut in space, and spoke about her time on the MIR Space Station, her science experiments and how a high morale team spirit is vital to success. 

After the trip our Year 8s felt empowered by Helen's story. Izzy P commented on how Helen's advice to “aim high, and always believe in yourself” has inspired her.
