What says..

Exceptionally talented at inspiring children and setting them at their ease; they positively bubble with delight at his arrival, and are reluctant for him to depart. His office boasts masses of impressive artwork with a stunning pencil portrait of him done by a pupil. His ‘persona' is emphasized by a lurid collection of over 200 ties, which are the source of endless discussion and delight to pupils. Though he does not teach, he is very much in evidence around the school at all times.  The main campus is an amazing hotchpotch attractively united by some remarkably well-designed gardening and wonderful views...
