Excellent teacher and nice guy - only one criticism though, he spends a lot of time in the cupboards upstairs during lessons. Each lesson he would tell us he was "only going to get some stationary from upstairs. He would select a volunteer to help him, and they would be gone for ages! Whenever he and the student would return from upstairs, the student always looked very palee, and walked as though they had an injury. What could've happened? Oh well, one of life's mysteries i suppose!

Felt our dear Catherwood needed a complementary update. An incredible person, teacher and soul. Driest humour I've ever seen but one of the funniest men I've had to pleasure of meeting. If you're traipsing the web because you have the pleasure of being taught by this odd, Oxford god, then I salute you. Also - read Paradise Lost. God know she Gordon loves it

He is by far the most articulate person in the school with an impeccable style of clothing, but he gets very annoyed when he cant use his laptop frequently!!, "Alison look what I've done!!"

Gotta love the camp sense of humour. He's shouted at me loads, but you can see he's a soft puppy beneath the hard exterior

His harshness is his humour, but sometimes he takes it too far so he is nasty. Good teacher though.
