Mr Ray, well what can I say? I was devastated to hear of his passing as he was one of my favourite teachers. He taught me more than your standard English, he taught me how to approach my learning from a different angle if I wasn't understanding it. He made his class fun and easy and everyone I know thinks very highly of him. I would love for him to have taught my children. R.I.P Mr Ray.. a true gentleman and inspiration.
Cool! He may not have always stuck to the boring ciricullum....but he was funny, caring and really passionate about what he did. Always inspired & encouraged me. Can't believe hes gone, miss him loads
he was the best! didnt teach me but had a lot of time for all pupils. thanks...
A great person, great teacher...just a shame he supported Everton. Easily my favourite teacher, and taught me alot more in life than just general English. Shame to hear about his passing away.

couldn't ask for more enthusiasm from a teacher. Now he's taught us all a true lesson. In the words of bob dillan 'He not busy being born is busy dying'.
A wonderful teacher whotaught me years ago and inspired me to learn.I love literature and life because of him.He aimed to help each child and I thank him deeply
