What the school says...

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

The School is conveniently located on a magnificent 250 acre site just off the A3 and to the south of Guildford. Charterhouse has around 815 pupils and accepts boys at 13+ and girls at 16+.

Academic excellence is at the centre of all that we do, and our pupils go on to study at the very best universities in Britain, and indeed around the world. We value intellectual development in the broadest sense, and we offer an outstanding range and quality of extra-curricular activities, as well as excellent pastoral care to support and sustain our pupils throughout their time at Charterhouse and beyond.

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

What The Good Schools Guide says

A famous football school - Spurs 'Legend' directs the game - with seven teams in each year and masses of matches for all. Very much a school for joiners-in. 'They do their best to make them try out everything. So even lazy boys get really pushed to try things.' Pupils are polite and charming and discipline is good though ...

Special Education Needs

As the current Code of Practice requires, we are ready to take all necessary steps to ensure full access to our curriculum for students with any type of disability. We do not, however, specialise in any particular area of SEN. Whilst our entrance exams do not discriminate on SEN grounds alone, it should be remembered that we are a selective school.
