Loved cricket players and hated the rugby team. Never had a hard time from him and he was very supportive to. He didn't have much time for wasters which I thought was good. Overall, good principal

This guy isn't popular, unfortunately. I'm friendly with him, but he's a bad principal and a poor leader; he has all the wrong priorities. Has driven HNHS into the ground. Doesn't understand people.

I was a new student here in 5th form and for most of the year I had no idea what our pricipals name was. I'd see him around school and think he was just another teacher. He never made an effort to welcome me to the school or at least introduce himself. I was and still am appaled.

He makes me feel bad that I'm too average. He groups students into people who are excellence and people who will never become anything.

I strongly agree that Adams has NO time or tolerance for anyone other than those that achieve excellence or participate in sports & favours males. The arts & english suffered greatly & more 'alternative' kids were cast aside to fail & offered no help to succeed. He is highly critical of individuals that do not conform to his elitist image. As 1 of these students i proudly announce i was accepted into an exclusive design school on my portfolio alone & am currently studying business communications

Never helps students constantly preaching to students without helping them. When he gets away from praising those on the sporting field, he occasionally fidns time to praise those who are achiveing in the academic and cultural fields, saying it was due to them taking up the oppurtunities avaliable at school, rather then there own hard work. He forgets that he hasnt really implemented any school strategy to help students, only hard working teachers who keep this epitome of snobbery in his job

Good principal, but does need to get to know the students more and understand how we work in class, not just to force us to do things. He should also take interest in other subjects not just sports!gd

Mr Adams does not do enough around the school, He needs to get more involved like some other teachers around the school.

Mr Adams recieves a lot of criticism from students who do not undrstand the position he is in. He puts a lot of pressure on students to make the school 'look good'. This is interperated the wrong way.
