Best teacher i had at MGS. Top class. Dragged the performance of the whole class up
One of the sharpest teachers I came across during my time at MGS. He is the kind of person who enjoys the more mature relationships he can form with his A-Level students. Can pull off the demeanour of a disciplinarian very well when he needs to, but he is much more than an ex-copper. Always felt as though he kept a distance from me personally, which I'm still trying to figure out the reason(s) for. Excellent for exam preparation - his PowerPoint slides and no nonsense marking are valuable.
I spent several years with Mr. Farr in differing capacities and he is a good teacher. Is temper is short but its clear he gets angry because he cares. I have many vivid memories about our interactions and most of them were negative or combative, but I don't think they were any less useful at making me a better student and person.
Thank you Mr. Farr, and I can run and catch the ball at the same time if you throw it in front of me.
Mr Farr is a good RS teacher who sometimes goes RAGE on the whole class or hands everyone a detention, tells us to fill the form out then give it back to him so he can give it to us when necessary. But he can be nice.
Great teacher if you have neither aptitude for nor interest in the subject.
One of the best teachers for making you understand something,and goes on huge rants which are hilarious
He's not a bad teacher except he has clear favourites (at least in my class) and totally ignores people who aren't very vocal plus, when they do say something he does not take it seriously. Despite getting an A** in my assessment he still gave me a coasting (second worst) for effort in my report- says it all really...
good, fair teacher and strict when is needed. Knows alo about his subject, you would be lucky to have him.
Farr is undoubtedly a good person, but I really lost my passion for my subject when he taught me. It felt like we were studying a levels, not religions. And you can get that anywhere else.
Philosophy in 6th form was great! We got amazing module scores for his A2 module as well (avg was something like 88/90).
Those who dislike him are the slackers. If you actually try hard then you are guaranteed an A or A* with the Farrmeister
not much patience with time-wasters but works like no-one else for you if you're putting the work in yourself
Great teacher. Not someone to get on the wrong side of. Liberal with his detention slips. Great teacher though if one is prepared to work.
Brilliant and dedicated teacher, and a great guy too. Very funny, knowledgable and clever, and if you are prepared to actually do some work he'll go the extra mile to make sure you do the best you can.
lol cool guy. puts things rreally well and never lost patience with our minor rs group even during arguments... oh..... wait a minute... lol
Not as good as Mr. Greggs - he'll never be as cool, intelligent and funny. I'd rate him second in the all time top MGS teachers, but he'll never live up to the mighty Greggster.
Another phenominal MGS teacher, works you hard, if you get on the wrong side of Mr.Farr its going to take something special to get back on his good side.
sadly he asked all his pupils to give him good ratings on this website
Farr is legend. Farr is mighty. Farr is best & Farr is ALWAYS right. Except when he's not. Farr could take any other lameass teacher using nought but a blunt spoon and a piece of string. We love Farr!
Unbelievable teacher actually is the personification of the perfect teacher. So helpful and understanding,gains respect from all his pupils. best teacher in the school and a legendary form tutor
The Best teacher at mgs, no question about it. if every teacher was like Farr it would be the best school in Britain
Awesome teacher, best on I've ever had. Approachable, helpful, understandable, hard working and an absolute genius. Amazing form tutor aswell.
