I can't believe he retired! He was the best teacher at the school! Learnt so much from him in Latin and in the lower years R.E. A truly amazing teacher!
Alas, Mr. Derrington has retired. But may he long be remembered for his immense knowledge and enjoyable catchphrases. "Come on, Baby" come back so that I can do Philosophy at A-level
Un-faultable. Mr. D is such a great teacher! I learnt so much when having him for Latin. His catchphrases are unforgettable, and re-usable. An awesome teacher none the less.
A good man through and through, regardless of religous sway. I'm sure he's a pillar to many. A rare mixture of hilarious educated eccentricity and human understanding. Dig deep for this one gentlemen.
Have we any "sobbing sinners"? Mr. D ain't one of them. He knows his stuff very well, sets appropriate homeworks and is consistent with punishments. However, he seems not to recognise blatent cheating
Along with Mr Barnett, the only extraordinary teacher I've ever had...has shaped my life in so many ways beyond Philosophy I can't explain...
wow...WHAT A TEACHER. great at teaching, but he eats leaves...i think
'oh deary me' and 'are there any defaulters' are catchphrases that will stick in my mind thanks to him
Great at teaching us on how to have "PEF experiences", how to enjoy our "off phase" that we apparently all have in our teens. Well I'm not sure if he has finished his phase or is it permenant???
original and entertaining. really gets u thinking and really dedicated
