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.

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.

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.

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.
