“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

All staff were amazed at how he captivated the whole school in assembly (staff included!) and then went from the Reception class to Year 6 with such ease. This is not something many people can do. He was fantastic and I felt my school was very lucky to have met him.”
