Derby High Welcomes Andy Stanton!

The Senior School Hall was filled with laughter on Thursday afternoon, when the Junior children were delighted to meet author, Andy Stanton. (Author of the ‘Mr Gum’ series and his latest book ‘Natboff’.)

Andy kept Derby High pupils and invited guests from other local schools entertained with his zany stories and anecdotes, with many children enjoying the audience participation – some even crying with laughter!

Year 6 pupil Venya said, ‘Hilarious – Andy Stanton is funnier than a comedian!’ 

A large number of children were then able to speak to him in person and have their books signed.  So many, in fact, that Andy missed his train home and had to catch a later one!  Huge thanks to him for being so generous with his time.
