Bodeites is an energetic and lively House. As a boarder, my friends and I have learnt to be independent and self-motivated. The atmosphere in Bodeites is very friendly – each year group interlocks strongly within itself and with others. There are many different activities which you can take part in and develop your own individual talents.

Founded by Monsieur Buisson in 1874 and refounded by Mr J E Bode in 1881 (who remained Housemaster until 1908), Bodeites was one of the last Houses to remain in private ownership, and was bought by the Governing Body in 1921.
The current building, opened by the Queen in 1975, was designed by the son of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, architect of the Memorial Chapel. The accommodation allows nearly every boy to have his own study-bedroom throughout his time at Charterhouse. The Central Dining Room, Queen's Sports Centre, golf course and playing fields are within easy reach.
