Geoff Steven (G 59-64) remembers John West’s Physics’ master:

“The forgotten physics’ master was Mr. Cotterell. As for the Rev. Batey’s once a term sermon, fire and brimstone and a bit of pulpit bashing always woke us up for the last two minutes. It was an effort not to burst out laughing. His maths lessons were a trial if you were less than brilliant. One example of the next chapter on calculus would be on the blackboard then you were told to ‘complete the following six problems’. They were usually done in a fog.”
