Charterhouse has built strong links with the local community through the sharing of facilities and expertise.
Our staff and pupils are involved in a wide range of activities, including teacher training workshops, booster sessions, GCSE revision courses, teaching and coaching at local schools and fundraising events for charities, to name but a few. This involvement is an integral part of the School’s ethos as well as being important to many pupils and teachers individually.
School buildings, in particular Hall, the Ben Travers Theatre and Memorial Chapel, are regularly made available for use by local community groups. The School’s playing fields and the Queen's Sports Centre are also used by many local community groups.
