Great teacher who cared about his students, celebrated successes, coached, encouraged and was universally respected. Taught A-level in a way that helped us prepare for uni style teaching- extremely useful and one of the few at VCB that did this.
where do I start?? This man was amazing! Would love to know how he is!!!!!!!
He was an absolutely amazing teacher. I had him in my first and last year...a truly wonderful man! I've gone on to study history at uni, he's an inspiration!
Dr Doherty was the best teacher ever! I'm now working as a researcher on history programmes for tv and he's the main reason I studied history. Would love to get in touch with him and say thanks.
I dont know how he does it...but without realising it you lear sooooo much. He's the best teacher!
Amazing! Only had him for one year but he is the reason i choose History GCSE. Thanks!!
Brilliant- talked to us on the same level. Best teacher, really laid back & much respected.

He taught me back in the early 90's. He is the reason i can write and was able to get a good degree and a great job.thank you Dr Doc. GE
Dr. Doherty was a fantastic teacher. He's the reason I'm just finishing an honours degree in History from Edinburgh. Always extremely supportive. Had no idea was ill - what is it?
he was the best teacher in the skool!! its so sad that he is sick!! i got 96% in my exam with him and before i had never got any exam over 75%!! hes the best!!
Dr. D was the best teacher that I had. Super man with a real knack for getting the subject across. My lasting positive memory of VCB is Dr. Doherty's lessons. He gave me my break
we hope you get better soon!everything said before (that is nice) is exactly right!he is such a dude.
hes funky and i hope he gets better had him first year great craic
Hey, I have Miss Humphrey now, too! It's so different. He explains things really clearly and makes history interesting. Now we just copy notes.
hes a really good teacher but its weird 'cause you learn alot but just watch videos...but he's left my class and now we have miss humpfries :(
I agree with previous comments-you don't do anything in his class but you learn.
The best teacher in the world - ever! He's so cool. I never watched so many videos til I had him.
