Basically a legend and everybody knows it
Sad to have seen him go. He still contacts us from China though which is nice. Hurt, if you're reading this, I love you
Mr/Capt. Hurst is a hero. The most popular teacher in the school, and with good reason - whenever he enters the class to cover our lesson, a chorus of claps and cheers erupts! I can look back and say he's had a good impact on my life - he is very wise, brilliantly funny, and genuinely a nice guy. I've learnt more from him than Jesus and Gandalf put together. He is very involved as well - be it with boarding (though I'm not a boarder), CCF, and debating. I hope he never leaves Reading school!
The most amazing man to walk this Earth. If an angel descended and became a history teacher, a soldier, and a short term nurse you wouldn't tell the difference. Needs to remember to do his flys up though.
Bruv he's a legend. Star Trek fan and tells off students in the best way possible.
Legendary teacher who is still down with the kids! Jokes, but still a history tiger! RAWR! RAWR! RAWR!
Peter Hurst is a bossman. I love him more than anything in the world. He is really good at pointless, university challenge and banter.
Genius! So funny and has almost no regard for any school stuff.
I fail to understand how people have rated him so highly on clarity! He's a nice guy but a nightmare to have for a-levels as you actually need to learn!
Great teacher, so long as you remember to bring popcorn, and cotch back and ignore everything he says.
Mr Hurst was very friendly, knowledgeable and a great form tutor. He always had time for his pupils and took an interest in everyone.
We learn lots in his lessons...just not always what we are ment to be leaning...
one of the most inteligent guys at the school, he knows his stuff, so if you listen you will learn kids!
Legend. Total Legend. Although, it has to be said, I didn't know that Blackadder counted on the history syllabus... :)
Excellent teacher, very helpful, stalked Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but unfortunately got little respect. Still a nice guy. He always stops for a chat when you see him round town.
I am disgusted to discover that Hurst does not have 5/5. He is a fresh maniacal genius. Sure you have to put in the effort of, oh I don't know, LISTENING TO HIM but that's a small price to pay for the fountain of knowledge that he is. I'm fairly certain that between them, He and Mrs. Blackman hold every single piece of knowledge mankind could ever possess. An amazing teacher.
Problem is, while he knows his stuff and is enthusiastic, he can never get it across to the class. Pity that, although it makes for fun lessons.
Astonishing knowledge of his subject - sadly one senses charisma was never his strong point. He's at his best teaching A-level.
Legend. Talks randomly puts on videos and is possibly the most depressed man in existence. Long live Hursty!
Fun/funny teacher? Yes. Do we learn anything from him? Generally no. Good guy, but very difficult to learn from
Some people say we await the next Jesus. I say they are wrong. He is here already; Mr Hurst. This man is an example of how fantastic the human race could be, if we tried. And in A-Level History, he teaches you..very well.
LEGENED dosnt tell u off and gives u loads of videos to watch
A great teacher, there are only a few that you look back on your school days and say "that chap had a real impact on me" and he did. Whilst i dropped history at GCSE he still played an important part in my education, his work in the CCF, as a great form tutor and his extra curricular activities (ST club in particular) made him a great person to be around and be taught by.
A bit of a hero. Most teachers acknowledge him as the most intelligent of their peers at Reading, but in a Boris Johnson kinda way. If he's lucky with the students he's stuck with teaching, you'll learn; if not, a lack of class control prevails.
Shining beacon to the rest of humanity. He's very enthusiastic and knows his stuff (in fact he seems to know an awful lot about everything) but has no class control skills. Excellent combination ^^"
As much as everyone loves him, he's not a great teacher becuase he can't control the class - if people wanted to learn more than fill his class with paper boats then he could tech well, but they don't so more often than not no one laerns anything and Mr. Hurst ends up sad... He is a complete laugh though and a total LEGEND and as I said, we love him =D
Knows his history, probably alittle too well. Not great at teaching, just writes on the board and talks without really seeing if anyone listens.
A king among teachers. I once sidetracked him for a double period by asking him star trek related questions.
Mr video reigns on high leaving all other teachers trailing in his wake, adam hart davies helped me through the tests tho
mr Hurst is a total legend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hes every1s favrit teacher. He must hav a video world reccord or somthing
mr hurst is the coolest teacher in the school. GO MR HURST!!!!!!
Most legendest teacher ever. In one year of history, I filled 5 pages, two of which were drawings. Long live Mr. Hurst
Mr Hurst is the coolest teacher ever! He lets you away with anything and about three quarters of the time you only watch videos!
