The House is the centre of every Carthusian’s life, and the Houses offer a strong sense of identity and community. House spirit is encouraged by competitions in a wide variety of activities, from art to waterpolo, and House colours can be won for cultural and sporting achievements as well as upholding the School's values.

Boarding and Day

Inclusivity sits at the heart of life at Charterhouse and whether you are a boarder or a day pupil, your House is a welcoming home from home.

House Teams

The Heads of Houses and their families live in the Houses, and are supported by a team of pastoral staff and tutors. Each tutor has a small number of pupils with whom he or she meets at least once a week to provide the help and encouragement that enables every pupil to make the most of life at the School.

It is fair to say that every Carthusian feels that their House is the best!

There is also a structure of care amongst the pupils in each House. The  Heads of Houses appoint House Monitors to help care for pupils in the House. And during their first few weeks, each new pupil is allocated to an older pupil whose responsibility it is to make sure they settle in, find their way around and learn quickly how the School and House works.
