Geekhood: Mission Improbable
“Andy Robb was brilliant. He engaged the students (Year 7 and 8) from the very start. He started by getting the students to ask him questions which led to students having their hands up and down all through the 45 minutes he spoke. He shared some of his own socially awkward teenage moments and asked the students to suggest different scenarios, this resulted in roars of laughter.
The students are still talking about the ‘author visit’ two months after he came – testimony to his connection with the students.
If you want to make students realise that reading is a fun thing to do, book Andy Robb!!”
K Ullman, Trinity School, Berkshire.
“Thank you so much for coming to our school. Your talk to our Year 7’s was interesting, energetic, engaging and very funny. The students have continued to talk enthusiastically about you and your books are flying off the shelf in the library. The visit was a great success – both staff and students had a wonderful time and we can’t wait to have you back to talk about your new book. I would be happy to recommend you to other schools for similar events.”
S Fox, Librarian, Easthampstead Park Community School
“Hi Andy, just wanted to say a huge thanks for the visit to our school last week. The students enjoyed listening to you and you dealt with the questions really well. Hugely entertaining!” E Bolton, teacher, Northumberland Park Community School. “Your talk at my school today was fantastic – one of, if not the, best author events I’ve seen in my book-filled years. We all enjoyed it so much, we’re trying to persuade the school to drag you back!”
