In class Jack’s mature, thoughtful and empathetic approach enables him to understand some challenging issues and see things from a range of different perspectives. Jack has excellent listening skills, is attentive and studious; he asks some really perceptive questions. He shows respect for the views and ideas of others and genuinely enjoys the challenge of getting to grips with new subject-matter. Jack has been a pleasure to teach and I wish him every well-deserved success.”

He is extremely diligent in completing his work and ensures that everything he does is of a standard that he can be proud of. He consistently achieves a very high standard of work thanks to his willingness to ask for and follow advice, and his quiet determination to do well.
