My initial reaction to him leaving was very positive. However the last six months has been the pits for the school. Sir if you read this, please come back Mr Micknley has gone on an unprecedented power craze and no one can stop him except you.

Mr Burden's mere presence is enough to instill knowledge and education within my brain, as well as all of the traits of the MAGS way. I wasn't even taught by him but his commanding stature and enormous manhood is enough to intimidate even the greatest of men.

Excellent headmaster. Obviously cares about more than the premier sports as the academic results continue to rise. Has had to make changes to the place as it was obvious that it was going nowhere rapidly. now its flying high and im proud to be there

turns a blind eye to poaching at the school, let Mr Baker take the fall when school got caught, encourages rugby players to repeat 7th form until they turn 20.

He is TALL! I think he's pretty good, a bit quiet but nice to get to know. Made good changes (except the rule about guys uniform) to the school. Iv talked to him a few times and he seems like a really nice man.

I agree that performing arts could certainly do with more recognition and funding. for example. concrete and carpet flooring isn't acceptable for the only dance classroom in the school. other than that, i think he's a great principal.

He strongly neglects the performing arts section. I dont think he is aware of the most important things that happens around the school. He can be quiet nice one you get to know him. He needs to understand and acknowledge peoples passion.

I agree that the school in gneneral needs to take performing arts more seriously. If Mr Taylor had stayed longer I think the shool would have been granted a proper perf. arts center as he actually recognised it. Mr Burden was pretty good to me, but I can see how he does have faves.

Mr. Taylor was a much better princaple and understood and handled problems to a much better degree. i personally do not like him as he looses his temper too easily. definately not one of my favourites =(

although he may be heavy handed with his authority he also knows what he is doing and some of his ideas have worked well when implemented in the school.
