Showing my age, but Mr Klays taught me GCSE and A-Level History at Jo Ro. The best teacher I ever had. He took us to Russia in 1991 or 92,the first time I had ever left the UK. Such a great opportunity, opened my eyes to a big world of opportunities. Thanks, in part, to him I went on to university and now run a successful business in London. So many other teachers Justine t gave up on the kids in that school, but not him. Had a lot of respect for this man.
A well-meaning and committed teacher, but often chooses to promote his own political views rather than teaching objectively. Despite the fact that I often shared these views, there were times where it made the class uncomfortable as it felt like we'd wandered into a Labour rally.
That being said, his style of teaching is excellent and clearly gets results. Just needs to ensure that the class is welcoming to all students, not just those who share his ideology.
Shocked to see such a negative previous review, Mr Klays is one of two teachers who have ever motivated and interested me in a subject. He is incredibly well-read politically and one of the rare teachers who can be considered as truly qualified to teach his subject.
Really Lovely deputy head. Takes time to get to know everyone and checks that they are ok. Is a testiment to the school.
Anyone who he has been in one of politics knows what a fantastic teacher he is. You do homework out of respect. Only problem is he needs to do more teaching, that said I wouldn't want anyone else as vice head.
I think Mr Klays tries to be nice but only picks out on the negatives in people. He can never find a nice thing to say, only an 'improvement'. This is not a good teaching strategy as it demoralises you. He has potential.
Very fair and a man that deserves respect! One of the good ones for sure. Definitely should have been given the Head Teacher job, the school would be so much better with him in charge. Obviously a clever and thoughtful guy
well if it wasnt for mr klays i would never have got to this school. hes a very nice man, and from what i know a great teacher who cares about the students at the school. should have been headteacher!
