Nikki Olhausen joined The Beacon in 2014 as Head of English. She brought with her a wealth of teaching experience, having taught English and Media Studies for over 20 years in local senior schools. Nikki’s teaching passion centres around the more creative aspects of English, which has resulted in her introducing exciting initiatives into The Beacon boys’ experience, such as the BBC Young Reporter day, trips to Sky News and the Write Path collaborative writing event. Nikki holds an MA in Education Leadership and Management, which complements her strategic role within the school. She also has a huge amount of invaluable pastoral experience, having been Head of Key Stage 3 (11-14) for a number of years. Outside of school, Nikki is an avid reader and walker.
