16 - 18 year old girls and boys boarding and day
Boys are admitted to Charterhouse in Year 9, when most of them are 13. We do not have any hard and fast rules about the age of admission, and some boys come when they are still 12 and others when they are 14. The most important thing is that they are ready to start boarding in an academically demanding environment.
Most boys are admitted after taking the Foundation Scholarship or Common Entrance Examinations. We do, however, have our own tests for boys who are not at Prep Schools. A limited number of boys from overseas are admitted after taking our own tests in English, Mathematics and Science, usually in the January of the year of entry.
At Sixth Form, a small number of boys, usually 15 to 20, and about 50 girls are admitted each year to board. There are also day pupil places for boys and girls available in our newest House, Fletcherites. Admission is by competitive examination and interview.
