Best teacher ever, lovely man
The best teacher i ever had...I always look forward to french classes with him... Makes learning a fun... I always leave his class laughing and he makes my day much better with his sense of humour... !!! :)
Very down to earth gentleman that tells you were you stand. CHS would not be the same without him!!!!!!!!
Totally useless at careers advise !!! Do not let him try to tell you that you are not capable of doing something.
every time i leave his room i am in fits laughing!!! o and he is rather a good teacher too"
As a past pupil of the school, Mr Balmer once told me during a careers interview that I was not "university material" and that I didn't have what it took to achieve my chosen career. I have just completed university and achieved a 2:1 in my degree...
An excellent teacher who I have a lot of respect for.
nice guy i would say...but career guidance, what?i would hardly say he advised us 2 well no harm til him
quite bias at times. despite what he knows is true, he ignores it in order 2 look gud 2 his favourites

wer wud 6th from b with out him? he's very helpful&no's every single 1 of us 6th formers by name.always manages to keep track of every1's probs$ help 2 sort dem

Quite possibly the best teacher in the world. Definitely the funniest, and always enthusiastic;the man loves his subject! And careers knowledge? Infinite;Wow!
