Science & Mathematics Centre
We are pleased to announce that the new Science and Mathematics Centre is now open for lessons, providing 7 new chemistry laboratories, 5 teaching rooms, 2 preparation rooms and a project research room. This is a significant project for the School and is an impressive addition to our facilities, providing a world-class learning environment for future generations of our pupils.

THE FUTURE OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS AT CHARTERHOUSE
Science and Mathematics underpin every aspect of modern life, and future technological, economic and cultural progress will be driven by societies with high levels of mathematical and scientific expertise.
Charterhouse’s experience shows that inspirational teaching can succeed in persuading ever greater numbers of pupils to study and succeed in Science and Mathematics. Our examination results are outstanding and more pupils go on to read Science at university than any other subject.
Growing numbers of pupils choosing to study these subjects and as part of our commitment to academic excellence we have created the new Centre in which Science and Mathematics will be co-located for the first time.
Our plans have been shaped by significant changes in the way that Science and Mathematics are being taught at university, with much greater emphasis on inter-disciplinary collaborations across subject boundaries. It is important that we mirror these developments, thereby preparing our pupils for university and for the collaborative careers that lie ahead of them.
The new Centre provides:
- 50% more space overall
- A flexible modern environment of the highest quality
- The co-location of Science and Mathematics for the first time, fostering inter-departmental collaboration.
Our new facilities will have a direct impact on the way current and future generations of pupils study:
- An environment that actively encourages innovation and creative inter-disciplinary collaboration, resulting in a richer and more stimulating pupil experience and even better academic results
- More scope to innovate in the development of new teaching methods, ensuring Charterhouse continues to lead the way academically
- Additional space for practical work and the potential to introduce longer-running experiments which will no longer need to be dismantled at the end of each class
- Space to expand our nationally significant partnerships with Science teachers in the state sector.
