Co-educational boarding Senior
"Ambitious for your child.”

Charterhouse is a wonderful school with four centuries of history behind it, and committed to being at the
forefront of educational progress in the twenty-first century.


Founded in 1611, the School moved to its present magnificent 250 acre site near Godalming, Surrey in 1872, which is conveniently located within 50 minutes of Heathrow and Gatwick airports. 

The School has around 800 pupils, all of whom, except for about 30 day pupils, are boarders. Charterhouse accepts boys at 13+ and 16+, and has also welcomed girls at 16+ for over forty years. There are currently almost 150 girls out of a total of 435 sixth formers. 

Academic excellence is at the centre of all we do. The curriculum follows the normal path to (I)GCSEs in Year11, followed by a choice of Cambridge Pre-U / A Level courses or the IB Diploma Programme in the Sixth Form. We aim to stretch and challenge all our pupils, in many cases well beyond the demands of the syllabus, and the university destinations of leavers reflect both their abilities and the quality of the education we provide. 

We hope our pupils will leave us having achieved the very best they are capable of, found out what it is that they love and are good at, learned to challenge themselves, and to value other people.
