School Visits

I am available for in-person school visits to primary schools within the EAST MIDLANDS region and for virtual school visits to schools further afield.

Although I have written some chapter books and also create novelty books, most of my books are picture books and my school sessions are centred on these.

A typical school visit day consists of up to four class sessions with optional assembly and book signing. My standard class sessions range from simple readings with reception classes to longer sessions that involve activities.

Fees

My current fees for school visits are £450 for a full day, £300 for a half day or £150 for a single session (not exceeding an hour) plus travel expenses* and VAT.

Small Schools’ Discount: I offer a reduced rate of £350 for a full day, £250 for a half day (plus travel expenses* and VAT) to state schools whose rolls are listed as 100 pupils or less on the Ofsted web site at the time of booking.

* Travel expenses are simply the cost of Standard Class train and taxi fare (if any) when traveling by train, while car travel expenses are calculated at the HMRC Simplified Expenses Rate of 45 pence per mile.
