Fletcherites was opened in September 2010 as a Sixth Form House. It occupies the oldest building on the School site, the 18th century Northbrook House, which was purchased by Charterhouse in 1924 and was occupied by the Headmaster, Frank Fletcher, and was later used as the School medical centre (“Great Comp”). The first Housemaster of Fletcherites was Mr Ivan Hoffman de Visme (BH1988-2018).
Fletcherites is situated centrally next to seven of the boarding houses, Central Dining Rooms,Queen’s Sports Centre and playing fields.
September 2019 will see the introduction of separate boys’ and girls’ Houses. Two girls' Houses – Chetwynd and Sutton – will form within the existing, large Chetwynd Hall building. Fletcherites, will also become a girls' House from September 2019.
MISS ALICE BROOKING
In Fletcherites, our aim is to create a friendly, supportive, secure and homely community in which every girl is valued and appreciated. We seek to provide a framework within which our pupils have the opportunity to learn effectively, to develop their own interests, talents and intellectual curiosity and to achieve excellent qualifications which properly reflect their capabilities. Pupils are also encouraged to view Fletcherites as a place in which to relax and enjoy the social benefits of a close community.
The structures and rules in place in Fletcherites are designed to allow the smooth running of the House in a peaceful and civilised manner, giving pupils the opportunity to develop respect for others, self-respect and maturity.
