Why Sharman class?

All classes at Birchwood Avenue are named after inspirational British people. Helen Sharman was the first British astronaut and woman to visit Mir space station in May 1991. At just 27 years of age she was also the fifth youngest person to go into space.

Sharman spent 18 months preparing and was able to communicate with British school children on the radio during the 8 day mission.


This is inspirational to us because it shows that no matter what age or gender you are, you can achieve any goal you desire.
