|~ Simon Cooper, describing Mr. Kennedy on a school trip.|
Mr. John 'Paedo' Kennedy is a minor recurring villain from Channel 4 comedy The Inbetweeners. He is sexually attracted to Neil Sutherland, which hints at him being a paedophile.
He is portrayed by Waen Shepherd.
Mr. Kennedy, who works as a geography teacher at Rudge Park Comprehensive School (where the show is set), appears to be aroused by Neil, as revealed in season 2 episode 1 "The Field Trip", where it's revealed that he took Neil skinny-dipping in the sea, grooming him with vodka in order to do so. Will then attempts to use the vodka to get into a party organized by Mark Donovan, but Donovan snatches the vodka from them before they get inside, turning them away.
He then reappears in season 3 episode 1 "The Fashion Show", where he attempts to have sex with Neil, who's hanging around backstage with Jay, Simon and Will. After he attempts to undress him (and Neil tells him the show ended about 45 minutes earlier), Mr. Gilbert leads Kennedy outside, at the same time making it known that he's aware of his actions, to the point where Gilbert says "I'm putting my fucking neck on the line for you, John." Despite this, Kennedy still has his job at the school (for reasons unknown), much to the incredulity of everybody else.
