I've never had Mr Allen as a class teacher, only as a substitute for breif times and he's marked my exam. I only ever hear good things about him though and all the times I've gone to the English office with some sort of question he has been so helpful and nice. His exam comments are always great, they come accross as though he actually read our pieces and was interested which most teachers fail to do. Hopefully I have him next year!

He is the Head of the fabulous english department at Mod which seems to be populated with a bunch of amazing hardworking and inspiring teachers. As the head he obviously runs a very happy ship, as the group as a whole are happy and enthusiastic. He is also a great class teacher. Their Year 10 courses are great, something for everyone. The whole bunch of them work well together.

really an incredible man, the kind who changes lives and makes you wish you were good enough. he is so encouraging that it just makes me feel tiny in his presence; is intimidatingly clever and well-read and passionate and knowledgeable, yet nothing you say could ever be dismissed by him. his every word is nuturing and patient, and i can't say enough good about mr. allen. the sort of teacher who treats you as a friend; you'll think back about school when you graduate and miss him.

Cares about his students performance in class, however I dont see the 'easy' rating as 5/5, must have been at the start of the year x.x

Quite a good Lit teacher. I would say he deserves the ratings he has. He deserves some small award. Perhaps a bottle of champagne (actual champagn, from the champagne region of France).

Mr Allen certainly knows what he is talking about and is a very understanding teacher, yet he often takes half an hour to say what could be said in two minutes, because he feels the need to make us 'dig' through his words to get at the core which usually is, "hello class". That is not to say that using all this extrapolated language isnt helpful, things would just go a lot faster if he said what he meant and got on with it. One often leaves his class more confused then when entering it.

About the smartboards, it's Mr Williams thats over-protective of the smartboards. Mr Allen is awesome! The best English teacher there will ever be. He is definately a legend.

Looks like smeagol, and the dictiionary is his precious. Tends to be patronising, but I'll give him a 6.5/10 for teaching skills. He gets paid 80K a year, so you'd expect him to be decent..
