The sports programme at Charterhouse aims to promote participation and develop performance for boys and girls throughout their time at the School, with everyone encouraged to be active and healthy and to enjoy themselves across a wide range of sports.

Sport offers opportunities to cultivate communication and leadership skills, to work as part of a team, and to develop resilience by learning to meet success and failure head-on. Most importantly, participation in sport is an excellent way to improve health and wellbeing. It helps all our pupils to learn to take responsibility for themselves, setting them up for later life by teaching them the importance of maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
