Founded in 1611, Charterhouse is one of the UK’s leading independent schools, providing a first class education for boys and girls aged 13 to 18.

Charterhouse School is set within an inspiring 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.

Co-curricular activities are an essential element of a Charterhouse education. They combine opportunities for leadership development, creativity, exercise and team work. They are also great fun.

With more than 80 different sports and activities, including music, drama and other creative opportunities, all pupils are encouraged to develop existing interests to exciting levels and to take up new ones. All pupils have the opportunity to enjoy themselves across a range of sports and creative arts activities, making use of the school’s impressive facilities.

Inclusivity sits at the heart of life at Charterhouse and whether you are a boarder or a day pupil, your House offers a strong sense of identity and community, and is a welcoming home from home. The Heads of Houses are supported by a team of tutors and pastoral staff. 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.

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 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.

Around 110 pupils join Charterhouse for Sixth Form each year from a variety of UK and international schools. The university destinations of leavers reflect both their abilities and the quality of the education provided at the School.
