Product description

About the Author

Alan Robertshaw was born on Merseyside, in the UK, and has lived most of his life in Yorkshire. He spent his working life as a teacher not by his own choice but by that of his first employer, The Manchester Grammar School, an establishment which, in the late 1960 s, thought it knew better than he what he should spend his life doing. After a very successful undergraduate and post-graduate career as one of the first products of the University of York, the one form of employment to which he felt himself wholly unsuited was that of schoolmaster. But when the unsolicited offer of a teaching post at that famous school coincided with the looming threat of unemployment, he changed his mind and took it. As an English teacher in Manchester, and subsequently in state comprehensive schools in Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire, he slowly learned the craft of teaching. That is, of course, the work of a lifetime, and even after ten years as headteacher in a Barnsley comprehensive, he remains more aware of what he ought to have done, than of what he achieved. Now, in retirement, comes the opportunity to reflect, and to write. In his personal life Alan has had the joy of more than forty years of love and companionship with his wife, Margaret; and the reward of watching three wonderful children grow into adulthood.
