Originally built as a hall of residence for sixth form girls, Chetwynd Hall became Chetwynd House in September 2019.
The name of the building commemorates a generous bequest to the School from the sale of Chetwynd Park in Shropshire, the former home of Lt Col John George Burton Burrough (S1909). The original Chetwynd Hall was opened in September 1999 by Old Carthusian Rachel Portman (P78).
Chetwynd enjoys a quiet location to the north-west of the campus and is only a short walk to the Queen's Sports Centre, playing fields, netball courts and the Astro pitches. The Central Dining Room is also close by. The beautiful views and tranquillity mean that there is a space for the girls to have some peace away from the busy centre of the School.
