The most dedicated, passionate, and wholeheartedly devoted teacher to maybe have ever set foot in a school. A one-man classics department all by himself. Made Latin into something actually worth getting excited about. Didn't regret a second of picking Latin for GCSE all because of this man and his immensely long working days. He really cared about each and every student and it showed.
Best teacher I ever had, never noticed I was even learning except I did, to this day I still don't know how he did it. He seemed to hold the school together by sheer force of will and eloquent sentences. I still remember every conjunction for portas and it's been 8 years in September. He treated everyone like an adult but took no rubbish. Genuinely an amazing man who needs a plaque somewhere, believe me it would be better than the creepy portraits in the crombie
A complete legend-I don't know what the classics department will do without him. I had him for 2 years and to be honest he was part of the reason I took up GCSE Latin. He is sorely missed, both as a Latin teacher and one of the main organisers of the school's Duke of Edinburgh Award. Easy to learn with and a great laugh. One of the best teachers I've ever had. Thanks, 'Magister'!
A gift of a human being. That school is going to crash and burn without him. He really cares about his students, I was in his class 5 years running, and honestly consider him a friend. His passion for Latin and the classical world ultimately changed my life and cemented me with a group of friends I'll cherish forever. I could honestly wax lyrical for an epic length about John Reilly, but what happens in S3 stays in S3.
He is a very encouraging teacher who will help you get you personal or even better in any exam
Great teacher. Explains latin very well!
An outstanding teacher - passionate, engaging and thorough - who is leaps and bounds above most other teachers, in the amount of work he puts in to his curricular and extra-curricular activities.
"what's said in S3 stays in S3" love mr reilly loads xx
One of the best. As bad a student as I was I can still remember a lot of my latin verb tables due to the fun way it was taught. Couldn't say enough good things about the man - one of my few good teachers at school
so many things i could say about this man... HE'S GREAT!!!
He is so cool.I have him for latin.He has quite a short fuse and can throw a lot of tantrums, but it is absolutely hilarious when he does throw them.I love him.He is an absolute legend
Most likely the best person I have, or ever will meet!
He's so funny and a good teacher, makes everything easier to learn. And his infamous nicknames, he calls me " Con Con "

He takes to pupils so personally. Respects them. I can't fault him...except a Reilly Bender really is the most terrifying thing in the world.

One of my favourite teachers ever. Funny, caring, and I can still recite latin conjugations15 years later, and remember the nickname he gave everyone on the 1st day. Scary when angry though ('epi')
he`s really quite funny because sometimes when he reads us stories in latin to english he acts it out.
Mr. Reilly is quite simply the epiphone of the loveable, intellectual eccentric. I have far too many fond memories of his classes to state any one incident. Thanks sir!
He RAWKS! A really caring person who has never shouted at my class! He is legondry!! I am known as peE-weE!! lol He called me honest and faithful!

Can't say I enjoyed Latin, didn't like his pet names, but he was a good teacher, had real spirit, totally dedicated (perhaps too much so, he often seemed so stressed out!)
Best Latin teacher ever!!!!!! He likes everyone no matter how many times you don't do your homework!!! He's the greatest!!

Really nice guy, very hard working and funny but when he's annoyed at you (scary) it's always for a good reason. Was the best Latin teacher and DOE would be terrible without him.

One of the hardest working people I have ever met. So committed and a lovely person. Legend!
He decorates his room for Christmas, unlike the other scruges. Very enthusastic and somewhat eccentric.
