Classics – the study of the languages, literature, history and culture of ancient Greece and Rome – remains as important a part of an education at Charterhouse as ever.

The range of discipline can be fundamental in the study of philosophy, archaeology, philology and anthropology, and useful in modern languages, history, science and mathematics; the study of our subjects, in addition to any intrinsic interest, fosters within our learners a set of high-grade, transferable skills that remain valued by universities and employers alike.
