Mr. Bateman was the best teacher I ever had, by far. He was my form teacher for five years. Smart students wanted to be in his class, dumb student hated him. He rode a scooter to school and laughed in

I wonder if he got the promotion to head of english department that he so clearly deserved. A breath of fresh air into the classroom with his original teaching methods.

Going to college I didn't really enjoy english but in 5th form I had him as my teacher and he made me enjoy english if only for the days I actually went to school. He encourages students to do well and think outside the square.

Mr B changed my life and led me on the road to salvation with his absolutely genius Mr T method. It's the most useful thing I've learnt since walking, and is far more than just two lines. Don't get me started on mind maps, which are 1000 times better than brain storms, and not the same thing at all.

Mr N Bateman showed me the Mr T technique which changed my life and led me on the way to salvation. Mr T is the most important thing I've learned in my life since how to walk. Thanks big B.

He's very enthusiastic about what he does, however his speeches seem to take up the whole period, and whilst entertaining, don't let the student get on with his work. Overall a very good teacher

Baters! You are the man! If it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't be at film school right now and achieving well. He'll take it out of his own time to help students that are willing to learn.
