Construction of new Houses

Building works are underway again here at Charterhouse 

Two new Houses will open in 2021 as we move to welcome girls into Year 9 and full coeducation. A time lapse video below shows some of the progress so far: 

Full coeducation at Charterhouse is an important decision that the Governing Body has taken as part of its development strategy for the School.

Building on the success of our coeducational Sixth Form, we are moving to full coeducation from the age of 13. We look forward to welcoming our first girls into the Fourth Form (Year 9) in September 2021, the year in which we will celebrate half a century of girls at Charterhouse. There will be girls in every year group from September 2023. As the School is currently full, the School roll will grow over the next decade to around 1,000 pupils, the increase representing additional places for girls.

We have all seen first-hand the benefits of coeducation in our Sixth Form. We want to extend those social, cultural and academic advantages to the whole community of the School. Charterhouse’s educational approach has stood the test of time. Younger girls will thrive, as do our boys and older girls, on our commitment to care, independent learning, pupil leadership, and both academic and extra-curricular challenge and breadth.
