He taught me in the early seventies too. His lessons were terrifying yet hilarious. He used to mock my speech impediment in front of the class, but I could see the funny side, and he could take a joke himself. I still remember a lot of what he taught us.
Arguably the greatest dynamic thinker of the school, and of his generation.
I feel that he could be a good teacher if he stopped patronisng us and treated us like human beings. While on one hand he is telling us how "gifted" we all are yet lectures us about unimportant things
I used to hate phipps. For gcse my class were arses, so he acted his didactic self and preached the gospel of freud all the time. When you get more rational in 6form, so does he. And he likes hendrix!
Sometimes he is a little annoying and he treats us all like kids!
the best teacher ever fantastic i don;t understand the people who have put 1 1 1 he is an amazing teacher who tries his hardest and some people says he needs help. what? mr phipps is best geo from vi
Phipps doesn't do much work, it is a doss lesson and spend all lesson discussing random things. Likes everyone to know he is the best and was jealous of the cleverest guy in our class
Well meh. I'm certain the man is aiming to teach, but the way... meh. I believe we COULD use lesson time more wisely, but from looking it on his side, he's trying to make geography fun. Uncertain. :I
we have some great lessons with this bloke. The only problem is that we never do anything related to geography, instead we tend to talk about psychological stuff no one else wants to teach
Worst teacher I ever experienced.He is unfair, bears personal grudges with children, bullying, lazy and a public charlatan: but the worst thing is that on Ofsted days he is capable of great teaching.
i dont get him, he got an MBE, but i got a D. how does that work? he told me off once for not looking at him while we were working, then when i looked he gave me a detention for staring at him.
Very egotistical. I didnt like him at first, but i think i have grown to like him. He could be even better if it wasnt for certain students on the front row sucking up to him, fueling his ego
Got a big ego but for some reasons lessons are fun and he definitely gets results. I hate to say this but he is a really good teacher.
