Mr Leigh is an unpleasant and stressful teacher. I'm in his year 13 accelerated physics class and he overcomplicates every basic physics principal to the point that noone knows what hes talking about, and he rambles on about us not doing homework we didnt know he set. He has good intentions and is very dedicated to his job and his students, and even more so to his beloved physics. Often berates and demeans the same students repeatedly and makes comments that could be misconstrued

His jokes aren't funny. I mean, its ok but he tries to hard. Also, yes, he writes ways to much. Yes its all important but he drags the notes out, I just read and rewrite them. In the end, I stopped taking notes when we hit the 3rd bored and wrote short stories instead. Don't drink in class.

People give him a hard time for being mean, but the truth is if you were as intelligent as him you'd get fed up with dumb students as well. He has a hilarious sense of humour (the actual joke is never funny, it's just the way he says it), and I don't think he favours the girls. If you have a good attention span and you want good marks, this is the teacher for you...

has a sense of humour. If you listen, you'll learn a lot! A lot of writing though ... o o But overall he's a really good teacher. You would want him in year 13 or 12 physics. he has a lot of knowledge. although he talks a little fast...
