He was my sons favourite teacher. In this day and age, for a 15 year old boy to state this says a lot about the kibd of man he was. Legend.

Sad to hear Mr Currie's passed away. He is an amazing man, incredibly warm, funny and big hearted. I'll never forget him coming into our lesson in-character as a Shakespearan actor. Or turning up at our home when John was unwell to support us.
Such a big man who is sorely missed.

i never had mr currie as a year-long english teacher, but i had him as a supply teacher, once or twice. needless to say, i wish i could've experienced more of his teaching - he was truly inspirational and his pure passion for the subject was something you rarely see. RIP, i'm honestly in disbelief that this could've happened so suddenly. he will be forever remembered, and certainly missed.

Mr Currie - the beating heart of Qe and the most gracious loving man to ever walk this earth. His passion for his work, his empathy for others, was unbelievable. Mr currie touched the hearts of everyone around him including those he didn't even teach in a classroom.
Sir, no-one is perfect, but you seemed to be the perfect gentleman. Qe is a little weaker today, as it is you sir who made Qe what it is today. The ultimate embodiment of our school. Thank you for everything. Forever in our hearts.

Everyone's hearts sunk when we heard what happened today. You are a legend and deserve so much and I wish we gave you it when you were with us. Never failed to make me smile and cannot begin to count the amount of tears I have shed alone, never the amount everyone today has shared. We love you so so much and couldn't asked for a better man to teach us English Lit.
I hated my school so much and I never realised just how brilliant it was until we lost what made it great x R.I.P you star 💕

Alan Currie was nothing short of an inspiration. He was one of the kindest men I have ever had the fortune to know. He will be missed by more people than anyone could imagine for both his light and his generosity. A beautiful human being who I feel honored to have known and been taught by.
Rest in Peace

I only spent 15 minutes with Alan Currie, at a school event with my daughter. Such was his inspiration, I left the classroom with tears in my eyes - I read more classic literature in the next 12 months than I had read in the previous 50 years put together. I so wish I had known him earlier and for longer.
