Originally from Margate, Mr. Scarlett attended St. Edmunds School in Canterbury and Chatham House Grammar School for Boys in Ramsgate.

He was Director of Music at Babington House in Chislehurst, studied conducting with The Kodaly Institute at St. Catherine’s College, University of Cambridge, and is a member of the Performing Right Society.

Mr. Scarlett enjoys exploring deep tropical forests, climbing active volcanoes and attempting to surf world class breaks in Indonesia.


Mr Scarlett qualified as a teacher in 1992 at Avery Hill Teaching College, Greenwich, and has held posts in both Primary education and some of the UK’s most prestigious Kentish Grammar schools, including Invicta Grammar School in Maidstone and Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys, where he was awarded The Rolls Royce certificate, ‘in recognition of outstanding contributions to science teaching’.
In 2015 he completed a TEFL course in Thailand to teach English and Science there. He went on to hold a Deputy Headship, as well as being Vice Principal and Director of Studies at Highlands International Boarding School in Malaysia.
Mr Scarlett returned to the UK in 2018 and has been a supply teacher whilst fulfilling family commitments.
