Thanks for being such an inspiration. I'll always remember the banter! RIP.
Taught me Geography 1959/64. Made the world come alive in my mind. Mr. Youd is responsible for my lifelong love of geography,travel and the world's diverse natural features. God bless him.
To the greatest teacher anyone could wish for.... I will get an A for you. RIP
Gordon Youd, GY. A legend and one that will be greatly missed. He was dynamic, fun, witty and passionate about his subject. He died doing what he enjoyed doing - teaching. It was a great pleasure to b
An amazing teacher! Best ever i m is top student!!!!!
probably the best teacher i know, can't fault him at all
this bloke is top notch. not just as a teacher, but as one of the lads that u can have a laugh with.
GY taught me 30 years ago, absolutely full of enthusiasm and many from our year went on to study geology. A real charcacter , in fact.
the bes teacher going...aslong as learning the subject isnt important to you
can't believe what everyone has said about him he's a great teacher who actually trusts us and we actually have decent lessons unlike other teachers the best teacher ever
this teacher will: not mark any work, repeat numerous stories about toffee melting in his pocket, blame anything that he does wrong on the previous geology teacher (Dr Rock) even tho he left 2years ago (to become a viker), tell you that he owns GY limited and so doesnt have to mark, fail your geology gcse because he misses pages off the syllabus, instead choosing to teach the 1833 geology syllabus, tell you that ur work is oxford quality when it wud scrape a C etc.etc.etc.etc.etc. get the point?
What a great fella! He's gonna be at WGSB for the rest of his days. Hazeldine's should pac his bags to make room for this guy!
He is the best teacher i've ever had. He's funny (most of the time) he's cool and Just A legend.GY 4 HEADMASTER
Has a tendency to call people 'Rascal' and (randomly 'Zacharias'... Makes wild claims about his Austin Princess and Street Fighting too... Chin like the Rock of Gibraltar. In our year there was a football team called Youdventus after him, as well as Borussia Gordon...
Really lazy, never marks work on time. Blames doc rock for everything as well!
Average at teaching, but a good laugh whether intentional or otherwise. Says "lads" in almost every sentence.
I also find his technique out-dated, I really don't think I'm learning much.
I'm 46 and he taught me year ago - the best geology teacher ever
