“Thank you for a very enjoyable and entertaining talk yesterday. We feel, as staff, that we’ve all learned something new and you’ve generated a buzz among our students for medicine in the trenches! I hope you will consider returning next year so we can build upon this success and enable future Year 10 groups to have the same experience.”

Medicine in the Trenches

“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”.
