Very Helpful and knowledgable teacher. His speacialisities were the anatomy of young girls and the making of spliff. I rememeber him always raving on about being able to make 10000 Sperm Cells a second... well i guess he wasnt wrong

Difficult to get on the wrong side of him yet still don't try to because he's just safe. I understood Biology a whole lot better thanks to him. Shame about his love for Stargate...

Good teacher. Cool at times, but his interests (Star Trek, Computers, Airfix planes, Living with his parents) are very sad. I still have a lot of respect for him and he is a pretty nice guy

AWESOME! FANTASTIC! BRILLIANT! Those three words definately sum up Mr.Downes. I've never had such a great Biology teacher ever!! When I had Mr.Harrison, I got Bs and Cs on tests, in the first two tests I've had with Downes, I got an A and an A*! All teachers should be like him.
