Mr Sparke is extremely focussed on academic subjects and doesn't pay enough attention to creative arts; such as art, design and technology, photography and creative media. Although he is very knowledgeable and has helped improve academic grades, I've seen countless staff from creative art subject teachers leave the school while he's headteacher at Bennett. He has also enforced pointless and strict uniform rules in the school, which a lunch time detention will not solve anything.

Mr Sparke is firm but fair. He is a knowledgeable, well presented gentleman. He cares about his students and though he may appear strict, his methods are in the best interests of the school. Honest and clear, he is a good person and a good teacher, despite the negative representation of him which may be created by some students.

Mr Sparke's teaching is always clear and helpful. His extensive knowledge of both the subject and different historical interpretations enables everyone to synthesise their own personal argument to achieve the highest marks. His teaching methods are clear and the diverse range of activities provided whilst in the classroom appeal to a wide range of different styles of learning to achieve success. I have learnt more in his class over a short period of time than I have with almost any other teher.

Say all you like about Mr Sparke with your misguided opinions. Mr Sparke is great and is extremely kind to me and has a wonderful sense of humour, knowledge and sense of responsibility for students.
