He was a very good History teacher. His Power-points were very useful and his authoritative demeanor made it hard for students to muck about. A strict but a very effective teacher. I enjoyed his classes very much who has great sense of humour.

Good teacher. He CAN teach without his powerpoints as he did in my 11HIX class but remember he puts them up mainly for our benefit as then we can simply look up and bam! notes are on the board for us to write down. Yes, he is strict but this again is a sign of a good teacher he prevents you from talking and remember he is the Associate Headmaster!!! This means he has to enforce the Westlake rules on everybody no exceptions. SO for those who are saying he's too strict man up and stop complaining

Is really good with classroom management, is somewhat strict and expects appropriate behavior. Me and friends used to joke about him never smiling, but being in his Year 11 History class changed my entire prespective, he turned out to be a fun teacher that makes jokes all the time. Pretty fun guy, really good at teaching too, he always looked over our submitted work to make sure there were no gaps in our knowledge, if there was, he would design assignments to cater to that issue. Great teacher.

At the beggining of the year he was as strict as hell, he sorta loosend up a little bit through the year, he tends to read off powerpoints a bit too much however he doesnt distract you like some other history teahcers.... yea u guys know who im talking about.

Personally, I think he is a good teacher, but not great. Tends to read from Powerpoints and doesn't add much else. Notes are comprehensive and good, also has a good sense of humour. As you get into 6th-7th Form, he becomes a little less strict and hardline. Sometimes late for lessons. Good overall.

Worst teacher ever. He didnt explain anything he just gives us little info about the topic and gives us some random activity that can hardly be revised from when looking back at the notes. He hated some students and liked the rest. Didnt learn much in fact NOTHING AT ALL.

I did really well in IGCSE History last year and had Mr. Cachopa, but i don't really like him. His jokes are too dry and his nature is too blunt. He got me some really good marks but i would have rathered another teacher, one that knew what he was talking about when it came to assigning a reasonable load of homework! A.P.

Wicked teacher, but if you're a slack student like I was, then you'll realise that History is hard. Really demanding teacher but in the end, really worth the troubles. 60% for IGSCE and proud of it!
