Organising a Visit

A visit to Charterhouse is an essential part of the process by which parents decide whether it is a suitable school for their children and we warmly invite you to visit the School during term-time.

Year 9 Entry

Many parents choose to make a first visit without their son, although it is quite acceptable to bring him. There are two kinds of visit:

1.  Headmaster’s Forums

We welcome around 20 families at a Headmaster’s Forum. This is a good introduction to the School and a wonderful opportunity to meet the Headmaster and other senior members of staff. Our pupils will act as guides for the first half of the tour, which will include a visit to a boarding House together with the theatre and sports facilities. Our teachers will then take over and introduce the academic side of the School. Afterwards, there will be a question and answer session.

Headmaster’s Forums are held on a number of specified Wednesdays and Saturdays each term.

2.  Afternoon Visits

Afternoon visits can be arranged on most week-days during term-time. These visits include a meeting with the Director of Admissions and a tour of the School with one of our pupils.

To book a Forum or an afternoon visit, please contact Sara Russell on 01483 291726 or

Sixth Form Entry

Girls and boys who wish to apply for Sixth Form entry are encouraged to visit the School with their parents during the year before the selection day in November.   

Girls: there are two Open Afternoons for girls, in June and October of the year before entry, when girls and their parents are given a tour of the School by a girl pupil and meet the Headmaster and other members of the Senior Leadership Team. They can also discuss their subjects with members of our teaching staff at tea. Girls who cannot attend an Open Afternoon may visit for an individual appointment (subject to availability), when they will be shown round by one of our girls and then meet the Assistant Head responsible for girls.

Boys: parents may arrange an individual appointment to view the School with their son. They will be shown round by a Sixth Form boy and meet the Director of Admissions.
