I think Dr Melvin WAS a very good headteacher. At the end of the day, if he doesn't push for grades etc, then students wouldn't go very far!! We need someone like that as a head.

Has done amazing things for the school, and i can appreciate he has a reputation to maintain, but is just too picky and harsh. Exam result obsessed, and all the teachers are scared of him. Arrogant
