After responding to a radio advert asking for applicants to be the first British astronaut Helen Sharman was selected to travel into space on November 28th 1989, ahead of 13,000 other applicants. With hard work and determination, she overcame her rigorous training and succeeded in her mission to achieve her dream. Like Helen Sharman, we want all students to seize every moment of their time at High Tunstall. We want all students to embrace teamwork, participate in healthy competition, take on responsibilities and applaud the efforts as well as achievements of every individual in the House. We remember that it is not always the best or the brightest who are successful, but rather those that work hard and stick with it.
