Bad Education Teachers Handbook by Freddy Syborn Review


Reviewed by Meresa Bergin

I was interested to read Bad Education Teachers’ Handbook by Freddy Syborn based on the hit TV show of the same name by Jack Whitehall, so I was thrilled when I was chosen to review it.

The book was larger than I expected but I felt it was a good size.

Having only watched a few episodes I was intrigued to start the book. It is laid out in different topics and areas, to begin with the head teacher Miss Isobel Pickwell who is writing to Ofsted about each of her staff members, which I found very funny.

There is also a part about the children attending work experience where each student writes about their week’s placement, which as an adult who also attended one as a student I could relate to some of the comments made about how at the time I found it to be pointless and spent most of my time trying to avoid doing anything!

Inside are also some recipes to try with a mock come dinner with me that the teachers host which again is hilarious, I loved Isobel’s review as she is so razor sharp with her quotes with others. There is also photo casebook’s which I had a good giggle at and quizzes that you can take part in.

I felt you got a lot for what you pay for, the book is literally filled with laughter just waiting to be read and enjoyed. The language in the book can be a little adult related sometimes so I would not recommend this book for youngsters and more for older teenagers and adults.

It would make an ideal present or to buy for yourself as a treat.

Now I am off to watch the rest of the episodes!
