I was at B.M.S. between 1985 and 1988. Unfortunately I nearly gave him a nervous breakdown and I was moved to Mr Nicholsons English class. He was however, a decent teacher. So 5 stars for him out of guilt if nothing else!

He was a poor manager. Had opportunities to deal with issues effectively then executed badly using outmoded techniques. He can only be partly blamed for that, as during that era (1991-1994) there was a clear lack of good management at that school, and a poisonous culture was allowed to fester. Nevertheless, he was an excellent English literature teacher. I recall his passion, enthusiasm, and perfect communication when relating 'A streetcar named desire'. First class. Couldn't ask for more.

Never had him as a teacher. Mostly remember him for patrolling the corridors looking for running, bad dress, etc. Very firm yet very fair and could also show kindness when needed. Good egg.
