34 years later I still remember his commitment and drive to get the best out of me.
I learnt so much from him and was disappointed when he retired when I'd only had him as my teacher for one heard. despite being reduced to tears on one occasion, because he scared me at the age of eleven when I knew no french what so ever!
Mr Horricks is the best teacher I've ever had! He may not appear to be the nicest of people for a month or two when he starts teaching you but after that he is one of the funniest and greatest teachers who have ever lived.
Once past his hard exterior, he is an exemplary teacher whom, although using methods of old, gets truly astounding results.
We saw you as a tyrant while we were in your class, but honestly, you taught me more French than anyone who has ever tried to teach me something quite as useless. Kudos.
By far the strictest teacher but has a great sense of humour and such a joy to be taught by. We once rang Classis FM during the lesson to request a song and a shout out. My favourite teacher.
Learned so much since I have had him - although hard work!
i never got french till i had him as a teacher amazin... hugo campbell hill
Best teacher in the school. I love him even though i dont have him.
Amazing teacher. Id still be struggling with french if it was not for him. He's was probobly one of the best teachers of the school whilst i was there despite his old fasioned teaching methods
Nicknamed ROBOT he cam across as very efficient but not very user friendly until the 6th form! Very good at grammar instruction and exam preparation.I still remember my irreg verbs
He is the man!! without mr horricks, i would have failed frnech AND spanish. Ollie Bridge
