If you would like Grandad Wheels to visit your school in person (within a 100 mile radius from Halifax) then please get in touch!

You will be surprised at just how little this will cost compared to other author visits!


If your school is further afield I can still visit 'virtually' using Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc.

Here's what schools are saying about visits by Grandad Wheels...

“Grandad Wheels’ virtual visit to the whole school was an absolute triumph! The technology worked seamlessly. After a quick video intro, Grandad Wheels read from one of his stories. He was engaging, funny, and really captivated our pupils. Not only were they entertained and got to hear a great story, but Grandad Wheels introduced them to character diversity and helped explain about disability and the challenges that other people can face. I would 100% recommend all schools booking a virtual visit from the one and only Grandad Wheels!”

- Max Kelly, Executive Headteacher, Laxey School and Dhoon School

“A fantastic visit from Grandad Wheels yesterday! The children were engrossed in the experience and our year 5 children thoroughly enjoyed their workshop designing a new wheelchair.  We definitely recommend you book him for your school!” - Mark Sharp, Cross Lane Primary, Elland

“The moment Grandad Wheels zoomed into assembly he had the children's attention.  Reading the story live and then following with lessons in the classroom really highlighted the adventures you can have in a wheelchair and disabilities shouldn't stop you from following your dreams.  The best visit you can ever hope to have - what a guy and what a book” - Chris Dyson, Head Teacher, Parklands School, Leeds

“Had a fantastic day today with Grandad Wheels!  The teachers and children loved it.  Highly recommended if you are looking for a high quality author visit” - Clare Roddis, Ballifield Primary, Sheffield

“Great to welcome Grandad Wheels to Cambrai recently!  What an awesome and inspirational story!” - Mark Dent, Cambrai Primary, Catterick
