Founded in 1611, Charterhouse is one of the UK’s leading independent boarding schools. With four centuries of history behind it, the School is committed to being at the forefront of educational progress in the twenty‑first century.

Building on the success of its mixed Sixth Form, the School is moving to full coeducation from the age of 13, and will welcome the first girls into Year 9 in September 2021. 

Campus

The School is set within an inspirational 250-acre campus, conveniently located close to London and within 50 minutes of Heathrow and Gatwick airports. With 17 grass sports pitches, 3 full-sized Astroturf pitches, an athletics stadium, a sports centre, 24 tennis courts and a 9-hole golf course, not to mention beautiful lawns and gardens, the campus is one of the best, if not the best, in the country. Combined with a 235-seat theatre and separate music performance and art display spaces, the School’s setting encourages pupils to contribute, and provides a safe community in which to explore and grow.

Academic

Charterhouse’s academic curriculum promotes academic rigour, develops intellectual curiosity and fosters the ability to learn independently. The curriculum follows the normal path to (I)GCSEs in Year 11, followed by a choice of A Level / Pre-U courses or the IB Diploma Programme in the Sixth Form.  The School also offers a taught series of timetabled extended projects and academic enrichment electives. The university destinations of leavers reflect both their abilities and the quality of the education provided at the School.

Co-curricular Activities

With more than 80 different sports and activities, including music, drama and other creative opportunities, everyone is encouraged to develop existing interests to exciting levels or take up new ones. A great many clubs and societies are pupil-led, offering real leadership opportunities and few limits to what can be pursued.

Boarding

Charterhouse is one of the very few schools now that is almost 100% boarding, with daily life for all pupils revolving around the Houses. The Housemasters and their families live in the Houses and are supported by resident Matrons, Assistant Housemasters and a team of tutors. Each tutor has a small number of pupils with whom he or she meets at least once a week to provide the help and encouragement that enables every pupil to make the most of life at the School.
