I joined AGS at the same time as Joel, him being my first form tutor in Denson 8 (10 years ago now!). His history lessons weren't that structured to start... but he grew up quickly and he and Miss Venning now have a killer history team so i hear - certainly helped to nurture my appreciation for modern history, but did tend to "recap" previous lessons in their entirity just to remind himself in Modern Warfare...Great guy.

One of the best teachers i've ever had, gave me a full appreciation for history, school sports and made Aylesbury an enjoyable place to go to. Joel helped me significantly in becoming the person that I am today.I would thank him if i saw him in the streets.

Joel is another AGS legend, he taught me history throughout 6th Form and helped me get into Oxford. Much respected and great fun. His enthusiasm and knowledge of history is amazing and his personality made him a favourite at AGS. I always enjoyed his lessons and our History trip to Russia. PAV and JMB are definately the History dream team and if you have those two teaching you A level history, then you can't not get an A if you put the effort in. All teachers should be like him.
