Jackie Hamilton, Principal
Jackie began her journey into therapies with a one day workshop in 1997 and got hooked!
Jackie originally trained in Beauty at Colchester Institute (2 year evening classes) whilst doing Reflexology and Aromatherapy massage, Indian head massage at Brentwood Academy. She started out as a (very) mature student and didn’t have time to waste!
Jackie used to work (10 years) for Lord Alan Sugar at Amstrad in Brentwood – and no he didn’t fire her. Jackie continued her studies whilst operating her own private practice, and began teaching in a wide variety of schools and colleges in Essex.
Having moved to Norfolk in September 2003, Jackie was surprised to learn there was hardly any teaching work available (as promised) and quickly realised why – there was a need for professional and private teaching in the area. Taking a deep breath, she opened the school in January 2005 with two reflexology courses. This has expanded (obviously!)
Jackie’s daughter, Sam Cummings runs her own successful Norwich School of Beauty in the heart of the City of Norwich
Jackie is an enthusiastic and motivating teacher who loves to pass on her extensive knowledge to students. She keeps in touch with her ex students through two school meetings a year and a private school Facebook page. She has been delighted to welcome back to the school some of her ex students who are now tutors and passing on the love of these therapies to others so that they too can change their lives!
Jackie is presently not teaching at the school but will continue to be heavily involved with all present and future students and take part in classroom sessions and planning.
