c/o 2001.I had a rocky relationship with Mr West. I was not an academic but I had a desire to go to university and find a suitable career. I had a tough start at school, being bullied and getting in fights because of this. I was always punished and never helped. Things changed and other staff members understood and got me on the right path. I went to university and I now have a successful career that lets me travel and earn more than any teacher. The opposite of what DG West predicted for me

An excellent principal, whose advice I always respected as a student. Not many in the Royal possess his integrity or professionalism.

Mrs.Curran is not good at it, neither of them are, really, Mr West should be an accountant(ie he has no people skills) and ms.Curran should be a proper teacher, no good in a position of power.

Good history teacher, it has to be said! Has to show his authority or he'd be a walk-over. Is funny if ya give him a chance.

Did not have him as a teacher but as a principal he was unapproachable in his manner could not relate to pupils in any way.
