“It has now been a number of years that Mr Robertshaw has been meeting with my students, explaining the intricacies of the Battle of the Somme and a soldier’s life in the trenches. Mr Robertshaw’s enthusiasm for the subject is contagious and, each year, my students come back inspired , with a concrete understanding of the subject. Mr Robertshaw does not simply lecture – he allows students to touch, hear, and see the war – through objects, video and activities. I cannot think of a better way to experience World War One”.

A Soldier’s Life – trench tour

“Who would have thought that I would get to cock and shoot a Lee Enfield rifle in my classroom! Andy Robertshaw’s experience was amazing and I would really recommend a visit to help you learn about the real war.”   Patrick

“Mr Robertshaw brought the whole four years of WW1 to life in one morning! I never imagined how much equipment one soldier would have to carry….It was amazing and we all learned a lot. Mr Robertshaw knows a lot of information and makes it funny and memorable!   Amelie
