The worst, looses everything, misses deadlines and the worst head of house. Stops us doing things that are traditional and going on throughout the houses purely because he's only interested in his reputation

A good teacher, very knowledgable but fails to mark books after taking them in multiple times. Big fan of DVDs, but what history teacher isn't?

Ignore reviews below. Often misunderstood, Mr Skeate's mood occasionally dictates how he treats you, but having said that he in nearly always nice. Deep down he means well and is a great guy. One could say he returns work late and occasionally comes to a lesson unprepared, however he is very knowledgeable and always has a draw full of CDs to fall back on; I admire his ability to create a lesson 'plan' in seconds. Take his advice and do the work for him, and he will get you at least an A at GCSE.

It has been nothing but a pleasure to have Mr. Skeate for GCSE; not just 2 years of frankly hilarious red herrings, but a lot of effective and interesting teaching! Nothing more to say than- Cheers!!!

Mr Skeate is an excellent replacement for Mr Hadley, he's great for Adams and will mature to an integral part of the furniture. Whats this about him leaving? Very worrying?

If we didnt have him there would be no CCF. Bit of a worrier but he always gets things sorted.

Very fun teacher, likes to make a few jokes, although lesson preparation could be a bit better... Lessons are generally fun, but likes to set a good few essays. Overall, very good.

Hes laid back most of the time, GCSE history is one of the most fun lessons ever thanks to his style. The only downside is he expects allot from you, and is always disapointed at mid-term tests.

people seem to have been a littl harsh. Mr skeate is a good teacher, but strangely easy to take a dislike to. His laid back teaching style prompts you to think he's lazy but when he teaches its intens
