Very sad to see this news, belatedly. He taught me in the mid 60s and was a true enthusiast for the language and was able to build a real rapport with the pupils. Spent considerable time chatting with him at the 'Class of 62' reunion at the Rugby Club, a couple of years back. Great chap! Howard Evans

A wonderful teacher who inspired my lifelong love of Literature

I, too, was inspired by Mr. Slavin during my time in Balderstone 6th form (1973-1975) and went on to get a degree in English Language and Literature at a red brick university. During all my undergraduate studies, I never came across a professor who could hold a candle to him. My sympathies to his family.

Mr Slavin was my teacher from 1982-1985. He was inspirational and I will never forget his classes. My deepest sympathy to his family who must be devastated by the loss. RIP Mr Slavin 💙
