Mr Cunningham was a teacher at Park Vale School.
As a teacher, he did not have much discipline and let havoc rule the class. (TV: The Day of the Clown) He also ran a form of detention and gave advice to Jacob West. After Steve Wallace joked about Jacob, he turned around and took Mr Cunningham's voice. When Jacob let go of the Berserker pendant he got his voice back and ran out the class with Steve Wallace and the other students in detention. (TV: The Mark of the Berserker)
