#1 of 2: Malcolm. I hope you read this one day. From the comments here it sounds like you might be the Malcolm Bowling who taught at Marlborough Boys'/Girls' College back in my day during my 7th Form year in 1976 at MBC. You were, at that time, also the custodian of the Innes House boarding establishment which I see is no longer standing. You inspired me beyond your imagination and it was a pleasure to have you visit and stay with my family at our property down in Tory Channel.

No communication skills with students, not helpful at all and doesnt relate to pupils or help with problems. Shouldnt be teaching physics especially at an advanced level. very disappointed with his appointment and support from senior staff

The school has set anyone he teaches up to fail! De-motivates his class! Thinks everyone is useless and maths! Can't tell you anything about individual pupils - the list goes on.

He taught us at Marsden and we were all so sad to see him go! Mr bowling is a great guy, with an awesome sense of humour ("Treat your vernier caliper gently like you'd treat your boyfriend") and the back row bandits miss him very much! Get to know him, he's a very interesting, funny man!

Good old Tenpin. Knows his stuff. Not a good explainer as everyone else has put. Although class is laid back, and I HAVE learnt something this year, Overall he is an alright teacher.

Mr Bowling taught me at Marsden and you guys honestly have no idea how lucky you are to have him. Even if he does like to hit people with metre rulers.

Not a great explainer, tends to skip the basics and ramble on and on and on. Talks about stuff that you'd only know if you've done physics for the past 30 years, tends to teach pointless stuff.
