Dave Gow was the first teacher I came into contact with when I started in 1992. He went on to be my tutor for the whole 5 years. 1992 was his first year in teaching, and I know he was just as upset at us leaving in 1997 as we were. He also taught me English in year 9 and Media Studies in 10 and 11. Mr Gow was that teacher you get who sticks out as the one off, the one who I enjoyed listening to. By the end, he felt like a friend, but managed to maintain his authority, a difficult skill.

I had the pleasure of being taught English by Mr Gow in 2008-2010. He is enthusiastic in his subject, with a great deal of advice and life experience in other fields to share with students. I am now going on to study English literature at University.

Mr. Gow is charming, funny and enthusiastic. One of the best in my opinion. He does have a tendency to go off topic though. A great teacher!
