Mr. Merrel's Thursday lunch club was the best.
Great at everything! Funny and teaches us at the same time, and he is even humorous out of the classroom :)
Best teacher, explains stuff very well, I went from C's to A's. Funny and gets along with all the class, makes boring history actually bearable, thank you so much!!!
The legend! The holy one!
Absolute legend one of the best teachers I've ever had and a aspiration for all teacher to live up to.Thanks
They always say certain teachers make big impressions. Nearly 20 years on Mr M did that as a form and history tutor at L.S.
Awesome teacher, good knowledge, helpful, and a good sense of humour, - 1 for constantly whistling
Best teacher ever
Legend "fun quiz, teams of one, no conferring"
got less than 70% under acourt but 98% under merrell. Simples
Mezzer is great =-) before i had merrel i found history the dullest thing ever.... But he is really funny and makes it so interesting!
"lets have a fun quiz! We will be in teams.... teams of one!" Why do the marks in the quiz never match with the question? Very funny teacher and probably the best teacher have had
Still remember john warm bacon 5 years after leaving school so must have done something right. Great teacher,
He's a total legend. god bless captain quiet. And the Third Reich. And captain quiet. And the super happy fun quizzes and essays and exam questions. And captain quiet. And his penny whistle. And captain quiet. And homework Dairies.
"get out your homework DAIRIES" Hes funny, nice though.
bless, remember him arranging a pop quiz which was in fact a mock essay question in politics, good sense of humour and vehemently denies his irish roots,
Undiscovered genius. had him for gcse and he was an excellent teacher, somehow managing to teach the course and fit in time for pennywhistle performances. i will never forget the infamous captain quiet lol
My favourite teacher ever! Inspiring lessons at A-level, very intelligent and always goes the extra mile to help with coursework. Funny (one-man quizes), talented (penny-whistle, table-tennis) and loyal Coventry supporter. Will miss him and thank him for 3 yrs unforgettable teaching!
Throughly enjoyed 5 years with Merrell as a form teacher. One of a few who will always stand out! Thanks.
minus the repetative,if not loveable sarcasm,wud b wnderfl at a junior school.but outstanding teacher.im sure he sleeps with the penny whistle undr his pillow.
Sometimes you are not sure whether he is in a stress, or is just TRYING to be funny...
He is such a dude, always funny, but keeps the class under control, bit difficult when in a stress but generally an all round decent guy. Learnt loads with him.
This guy rules! But when he starts on u he does not stop
He's an excellent teacher I learnt loads...funny guy too - like to get the penny whistle out now and again.....
The super fun quiz: play in groups of one, write all answers down, sit in silence, and all those with less than 60% can stay behind after school for another one.
Pedant. Needs to be brought down a peg or two. Sulks if corrected, rules through authority rather than respect
