Brighton College Al Ain is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Scott Carnochan as its new Headmaster who will continue to lead the school towards a bright and successful future that is recognised not only in the emirate but also globally.
With over 11 years of Headship experience and in-depth knowledge of the English National Curriculum, GCSEs and A-Levels, Mr Carnochan will join Brighton College Al Ain from his current position of Head of Holmewood House School in Tunbridge Wells, which is a day and boarding school founded in 1945 based in the United Kingdom. According to the Tatler School Guide 2020, the school has ‘thrived under his leadership’ since 2017 and reported that ‘pupils adore him and parents credit him with changing the ethos to make it more positive than pressured.’

With an Honours degree in Education and a Master’s in Educational Leadership, Mr Carnochan is a committed and experienced educationalist with an impressive career. Having held senior leadership positions at both Repton School in Derbyshire and St John’s College School in Cambridge, he was then appointed Headmaster of Sedbergh Prep School in Cumbria at the age of 35, where he played a pivotal part in opening its first international schools.
Mr Carnochan said: “I am very much looking forward to joining Brighton College Al Ain, a school that champions the same values of kindness, self-belief and aspiration as my current school. I am confident that my love of education coupled together with the school’s excellent College Leadership Team and teaching staff will continue to deliver an outstanding education.”
