Whilst terrifying when your not in his class he's a great teacher who really makes you work. I know that if it wasn't for him I'd have failed my A-levels plus he know how much work to set and never gives way to much

Once you get over the fear and hold your own with him, he is a really great guy and an incredibly knowledgable teacher.

He spends 50% of his lessons telling you stories about things like how he bought his wife a slow cooker or how his daughter was passed around a group of nuns. When he actually teaches history he is an outstanding teacher but can be a bit scary and gives quite a bit of homework

He ruined History for me. Has a passion for his subject, but forgets to bring the class along with him at times - and bullies them when they get behind or confused! Very heavy on the homework.

Good teacher who really knows his stuff, although he does bury you under with homework. Has a razor sharp, pull no punches, sense of humour that tends to get directed at anyone who crosses him.

Mr. Armstrong was awesome. I wasn't at Sullivan for very long and had a pretty tough time with personal problems, and without him about I wouldn't have gotten through it and be where I am now.
