Welcome to Charterhouse. It's a great pleasure, as the new Headmaster of this wonderful school, to introduce you to all it has to offer. This website gives you a first glimpse of Charterhouse, but I very much hope that you will want to come and visit us in person: you will be made very welcome.
If you choose Charterhouse for your son or daughter, you will be choosing a school with four centuries of history behind it, but also one committed to being at the forefront of educational progress in the twenty-first century. Academic excellence is at the centre of all we do here, 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 are also very lucky to have such an inspirational environment to live and work in: few schools can offer such a magnificent backdrop to shape the character of the education they provide. Visitors are invariably struck by the great beauty of our campus and our buildings, not least our wonderful Chapel – and indeed the spiritual dimension of life is very close to our hearts here at Charterhouse. We have a strong Christian tradition, but we welcome pupils of all faiths and none, and we gather together several times a week to celebrate our collective life, to renew our sense of purpose and to have some space and time for reflection.
I believe the values of a Charterhouse education will stay with our pupils for the rest of their lives. I hope they 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, having learned to challenge themselves and to value other people. But most of all, I want every boy or girl who comes to Charterhouse to believe that this is their school, and to know that each of them has a unique part to play in its history.
