Peter taught me at Pleckgate. I loved his art, and thought he was a thoroughly decent bloke doing what in hindsight must have been a tough job. He treated us with respect; I’m worlds away from there, so I can’t make the funeral, but my thoughts will be there. I’m not sure I can ever forgive him for playing us Leo Sayer, but maybe he’d be pleased that I did pick up on some of his musical taste. Thanks, Peter, I owe you one.

The nicest art teacher ever. He was always so kind and treat us pupils like young adults not children. Be sadly missed. Rip Mr. Shackleton x
