“I have had the pleasure of working with Andy on a number of occasions. His dedication and desire to provide a creative and meaningful experience for pupils and to set high standards, the achievement of which he supports and facilitates at all levels, are beyond question. His cheerful and pleasant manner, his sense of fun, and his professional approach to work, make him a writer and educator,( in the best sense of the word), that I would be happy to commission again and again.”
