He seems really scary at first but over time you get to know him and he turns out to be pretty cool. His tests are hard if you don't know the material but if you actually study and listen in class you should be fine. He roasts a lot of students but overall he's pretty nice. Just don't go on your phone in class because he will take it

Mr. Nethercott is an amazing teacher! He has a quirky sense of humor, and he is very easy to understand. He comes up with nicknames for some of the students in his class, and tries to set up Kahoot! for us from time to time. He looks very tough and serious at first, but he is a very cool guy, and a great teacher!

Nethercott is one of the weirdest but also most wonderful teachers that you'll probably ever have. If he's making fun of you a lot and being rude, don't worry, that means that he actually likes you as a student. He'll be sure to come up with some extremely interesting nicknames for you, and he personalizes all tests and exams for each class that he has. Honestly one of my favourite teachers at Sacred Heart. Enjoy his weirdness, it's the best.
P.S He's actually a total sweetheart

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES are you to use Mr Nethercotts speakers to play Soviet jazz! Doing so will result in you getting your phone taken away and him playing mind games with you as to whether he will send it to the office. Apart from that he is a marvelous teacher and I have the highest regard for his skill and intellectual capacity.
Thank you very much Godbless!

I have had Nethercott 2 times for history and law. He is very knowledgeable and really makes the topics interesting. He really understands students and makes fun of them a lot in a fun way. I always enjoyed his class. He was a though marker though and he only had a few tests and assignements but other than that, great teacher. Knows the material like the back of his hand. He would write notes on the board word for word out of the textbook without even opening it.

One of the best teachers in his school, his board, and probably the country. Pay attention in his class as he prepares you well for life after HS. Give him respect and follow his lead kids.
