It’s fair to say that every Carthusian feels that their House is the best. Imagine belonging to a family of 65! Boarding is about joining a big family and making great friendships. It’s about trying different things and getting to know different people.
“Daviesites is a loving and sharing house; the people of the House are always willing to help others when their support is needed, they are kind and helpful and they are ready to fight for Daviesites in any sort of competition (from water polo to chess) no matter what...”

"Being a founding member of an all-girls house has been such an honourable experience and I am excited to see the school go completely co-ed next year. Our housemistress has developed a comfortable and nurturing environment for all pupils who are lucky enough to board there."
- Year 13 pupil
“In Gownboys there is a fun atmosphere in which everyone is involved. The whole House comes together and forms a community where we have fun in House, on the sports pitch or on the stage. All of the year groups mix together really well and create a sociable, positive and productive environment.”
- Year 13 pupil
“Looking back on my first year at Charterhouse, Fletcherites has been a big part of my experience here. When I first arrived, I was extremely home sick and not sure whether boarding school was the thing for me. But as time passed by and I cultivated relationships with my house mates, I can say I'm more than grateful to be part of the Fletcherites family.”
- Year 13 pupil
“In Weekites we demonstrate pride in everything we do whether it be sports, academics or cultural activities. We value our House spirit highly and are serious about developing ourselves to our highest potential. Weekites is known for its ‘work hard, play hard’ attitude.”
- Year 10 pupil
“Boarding school is the best choice I've ever made. Although it felt foreign at first, Chetwynd is a second home to me and I have made friendships that will last for years after I leave Charterhouse. I wouldn't want to be in any other House.”
- Year 12 pupil
"Verites is not merely a boarding House, but a community: all year groups and all people get along, forming a coherent and harmonious atmosphere. What is especially great is the diversity of this House with our clear mix of academics, sportsmen and musicians, which allows any new pupils to meet different personalities and see other aspects of the School."
- Year 13 pupil
We are accepting of ourselves and our own abilities and we are sensitive towards the needs of other people.
We face challenges but are determined to learn from our struggles so that we may become the change that the world needs.
We reflect on all we have, make the most of opportunities available to us and seek to serve and support the community around us.
We have integrity and try to do what we know to be right, even when that is hard. We consider the impact of our behaviour on the world around us and try to leave a positive impact.
We are open to new possibilities and ideas and we are accepting of other people’s viewpoints.
