Brilliant teacher. I remember thinking his class was just a laugh at Duster period 'cause he was nuts, but then you found out you could answer the exam questions! Get the kettle on for the Alpen!
Mr Bennett, or Duster as he was affectionately known to pupils, was an absolute gentleman. Made years of Latin great fun. Had a great sense of humour and was very supportive of his pupils.
Quid Facitus Pureum? Duster... what a legend. Great teacher, great example - hilariously funny bloke.
nnnnnyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Duster rocked! Quintus et Scintilla will sadly be doomed now!!
I was a senior prefect at inst back in 2004, Bennett aka Duster was the most legendary teacher I had ever come across
Complete legend, funny bloke, down to earth and quality teacher..what a guy
AHHH SUFFERING ALEC! what more can be said? apart from AH CHRIST and, of course, IAM!!
what can you say about him? this guy will NEVER be forgotten in inst, gave so much to the school and recieved very little in the way of thanks in return. Best housemaster ever. leg
The new latin teacher has a lot to live up to. Mr Bennett has left his mark on the school forever. I dont know how im going to pass Latin this year without him to be honest...
Billy hes gone! Now i have jacques someone duster used to slagg in his spare time
RITE THAT'S IT NOW! Duster has retired-what will become of Latin?Having been at Inst for like 40 years, he had had had had enough.
He taught me for six years - truely excellent teacher and a man with unique humour - miss him terribly.
Great teacher, bit depressing in his assemblys to the 6th year! sorry to see him leave! Have a nice retirement! AaAAAAHHHH CHRIST!!
Duster the Legend! should have something named after him!!! how anyone will pass latin now i dont know!
I wish he hadhadhad not retired, HAVING BEEN such a legend. Latin will never be the same again. Aw crrrap.
Fantastic teacher, and probably the funniest since the Baron. He got me through GCSE Latin in one year with an A*, and lunchtimes were EXCELLENT. Enjoy the retirement Bill, and enjoy the Beatles painting. =D
i only had him in his last year, but he was the best teacher in the whole world!! never a dull moment ......servate me!!
Best teacher in the whole school, absolute legend. Pity he had to leave :-(

no one can compare to the legendary status of this guy. legend is an understatement. makes you laugh in his class and makes latin interesting.super legend
It is a shame that this teacher will be retiring at the end of our school year. He is hilarious and i nearly did Latin for GCSE because of him.
Mr Bennett- Shame he's leaving at the end of the year- never did an iota of work in his classes though and I got a lot of stick from him but he is genuinely one of the best guys in
Biggest legendary teacher 2 walk the face of the earth.so inpirational and passionate about his work.It will take sumethin amazin to replace this legend.Respect
the biggest legend on the planet. brought tears to my eyes i laughed so hard in some of his classes. excellent teacher too.
Uses humour to consolidate learning. Brilliant housemaster. Most extensive vocabulary of anyone I know. What a legend. Sorry to see you go, happy retirement!
