imageOn Thursday this week we were visited by Andy McMurray from the National Space Centre in Leicester. Year 10 pupils from ESSA, Bolton St Catherine’s Academy, Bolton Muslim Girls School, Thornleigh and of course our own Sharples students enjoyed a full day of space activities to celebrate the launch of British Astronaut Tim Peake to the International Space Station on the 15th December. The students built rockets, hovercrafts and comets as well as finding out what life would be like on Mars!

All students were a credit to their schools and Sharples would like to thank them for coming along.
