Fantastic inspirational teacher. Had him for InterCert English. Went off-syllabus regularly to introduce us to books, plays, music. Imparted a love of learning. Wish I had him for French. Creeeature!
absolute HERO! good solid teacher. wouldnt mess with him. class rugby coach had him as a coach in second yr. retiring this yr but will never be foregotten. HILLARIOUS.
Beware the Ides of March! Always remember this one from Ceasar...........The best teacher ever! I've had alot success in life- owe it to Austin!
The Monk was great, loved to sit in amongst us & get an argument going. One class where we listened to Edith Piaf was like Shawshank. Easy to get off topic ask about French rugby.
excellent teacher - best in the school when I was there. Believed in me, supported me, and inspired me to great success. I didn't play rugby but then I did work hard.
You either loved or hated the guy. Play rugby and apply yourself to studies,you were fine. Bumped into him a few years back, shared a coffee and a few stories. Very bright man
was the only teacher that beivived in me and i reprect that,some tell me that i'm the only one he tought was worth it.
Inspirational. Brilliant deadpan comic delivery. Well read and always challenging the class. A major impact on my life.
Not very enthusiastic, cynical attitude towards life. Would prefer to be in France.
Spent much of his time talking about his boring personal life. Had a few selected favourites and ignored everyone else. Poor teacher with a large chip.
