The only son of George Pearson, a silk tie cutter, George Pearson's first profession after Culham College, near Oxford (not a college of Oxford University) was teaching. He excelled in this role, becoming a headmaster by 1902 at the age of 26. His major post was at Staples Rd School Loughton Essex, on which there is a blue plaque. He was originally drawn to film making as an educational aid. In 1913 Pearson entered the film industry, initially as a script writer.
