Design genius

I just thought I would ask if you are aware of any teacher like Peter Martin, just retired from Kenton school, Newcastle.

He worked there for 38 years and it was said he has been teaching A-level design and technology for 30 years with a 100-per-cent pass rate.

I wonder how common it is for a teacher to be so dedicated to a school and have such a pass record? He also says he has never been sworn at by a pupil. That must be a record!
