Parents' Briefings

Parents' Briefings are annual meetings for parents of Charterhouse pupils. They serve two purposes: to provide a short lecture-style briefing on matters of concern at a particular stage in your son's or daughter's school career; to give parents an opportunity to meet with beaks (teachers) to discuss academic progress.

Please let us know if you are attending a briefing by completing the online Parents' Briefings Attendance Form.
