Cuthbertson studied at Oxford University and when he came to Australia he became a master at Geelong Grammar School where he taught for many years. While there he was founder and editor of the 'Annual and Quarterly', and wrote Barwon Ballads. His poems about the school's sporting activities and particularly its 'Head of the River' crews were well known to Victorian public-school boys. Some of his poems were set to music by Frank Hutchens.
