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.
I never realised how much of an impact me Currie had on my school life. Things won’t be the same :( x
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.
Nothing can describe the overwhelming feeling of grief when we heard the news in assembly this morning. He will truly be missed by all <3
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.
I will never forget you. Thank you for helping me achieve my life ambitions.
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 💕
Rest in peace 🙏🏽❤️
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.
What an absolute hero! He will live on in our memories forever. Beat teacher ever!
The most caring and enthusiastic teacher, QE has lost an absolute legend.
Greatest teacher I've ever had. You could really tell his passion for the subject was genuine! His Animal Farm voices were the best memories I had from high school english. Will be sorely missed! RIP
I was never taught by Mr. Currie, however I am aware of the students great love for him. I cannot begin to describe how his loss has affected staff and students. His patience and great passion for English will live on, as will our memories of him. Lots of love, rip x
Thank you for taking the time and always being patient
Always asked the students views exceptional
Amazingly dedicated, caring and kind. My children loved his lessons and learned so much from him then and still use his learning techniques today. Thank you so very much.
Had all the time and patients for anyone no matter what
Mr Currie was the most inspirational I had the pleasure of being taught by at the High School.
Me currie is the nicest teacher in the world, if you get him for English you're lucky, if you don't just go and see him at form time.
Total beast one of the nicest people I know
Mr Currie is an absolute boss
Great teacher, great guy. Mr Currie deserves an MBE.
Lovely guy and works really well with smaller classes, but always seems to get given awful and huge classes
Great teacher, lovely guy. Complete opposite to strict. Occasionally blows his top when you or someone else has pushed him too far but always apologises after.
One of the worlds truly great teachers, and a lovely man. He is infectiously passionate about his subject, and teaches is beautifully. Fantastic.
He is the most awesome English teacher ever. Before I had him, I absolutely hated English, but now I love it!
words can not describe his kindness and un parreled entusiasm the best teacher i have ever had
Currie Taught me in 1987 - and now I've been teaching for 10years! He was always a star then.
He somehow manages to stay calm (most of the time) despite being given the most awkward classes. This man deserves a medal!
Easy to talk to, approachable, enthusiastic and encouraging. Legend!
An absolute inspiration! very kind and very longsuffering.
A brilliant teacher and man. Leads by example and dedicates an enormous amount of time and effort into helping out all and any students with school and personal issues.
fantastic teacher so helpful and is always there for you a true star
Gotta be one of the best teachers ever! You can talk bout whatever you like with him and he wont mind! Hardly ever gets angry unless you REALLY annoy him!
nice bloke although seems distant at times, not the easiest person to approach although he does have legendary popularity amongst the student population!
he rocks helps you even when hes not your real teacher hes a star
