Charterhouse is a wonderful place in which to live and work. It was founded in 1611 and moved to its present magnificent 250 acre site in Surrey in 1872. The School has over 800 pupils aged between 13 and 18, all of whom are boarders, except for about 40 ‘day boarders’. Charterhouse enjoys an enviable record of academic and all-round achievement, supported by outstanding creative arts and sporting facilities. All staff are expected to play a full part in the academic, extra-curricular and pastoral life of the School. The curriculum follows the normal path to (I)GCSEs in Year 11, followed by a choice of CIE Pre-U courses or the IB Diploma Programme thereafter. We have high expectations of both pupils and teachers and aim to stretch and challenge all our pupils, in many cases well beyond the demands of the syllabus. The university destinations of our leavers reflect both their abilities and the quality of the education we provide.
