Welcoming Mr Nick Baker

19 August 2022

The new academic year is fast approaching and we are thrilled to be welcoming Mr Nick Baker to The Beacon as our new Headmaster from September 2022.

Formerly Headmaster at Wetherby Prep School, one of the most sought-after Prep schools in London since 2008, Nick has a wealth of educational experience spanning over twenty years across all ages and within both state and independent schools.

He knows the Buckinghamshire area well, living close to Amersham and being educated locally as a boy. Nick attended Chesham Prep School and Dr Challoner’s Grammar School before going on to study Geography at UCL and graduate with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at Newcastle University.

Nick is an established leader in the education sector and will be a huge asset to The Beacon, continuing to guide our Beacon boys through their school life and onto their future schools, ensuring that all boys receive brilliant support during their Beacon journey and decision making for their next big adventure on departure from the school.

Nick prides himself on building excellent relationships, and his natural charm and exceptional management is sure to help The Beacon Community thrive.

Single-sex schools are very special because they highlight what make boys tick. What we do here, is really look after the boys, we have Teachers for boys, not just Teachers of boys

In the welcome video below, Nick highlights his excitement to begin his Headship in September:
