A great old-school teacher. Hated him when I was in my first year, but thought he was an inspiration by the time I left. He also has a very good sense of humour - contrary to some comments on here.

Goes the wrong way down the stair system he enforces. Unhelpful. Doesn't let you ask questions. The odd par but not great. Also extremely harsh marker

I understand why Mr Gibb has been rated so harshly by many people, his teaching focuses more on providing us with the skills to critique and analyse literature and poetry rather than on giving us specific things to say on exams. While many people prefer to be spoon fed, I find this rather old school method refreshing,especially in a schooling environment where exams are generally perceived as the be all and end all.

Uses English to talk about more important issues, such as poverty, inequality, racism and communism. Helps you understand things and movtivates you. Great teacher! Sadly, people think he gives too much hwk, which is not true!

Criteria here don't do this guy justice. Not particularly clear, easy, or helpful...or cool. But still a legend for his sheer MGS-ness.

He's about as pleasant as an infection but he can teach like there's no tomorrow. If you put the effort in he will make you value the subject in a way few teachers can.
