The House is most importantly a home from home for its members. In the lively, but secure and tolerant environment that prevails, all pupils can flourish. The House has a well-deserved reputation for friendliness and easy relations between year groups. Robinites are encouraged to make an impression in all spheres of life at Charterhouse, to work hard and compete enthusiastically.
The Boarding House
Robinites was founded in 1872 by Mr GH Robinson, the Music Master, when the School moved to Godalming from London. It was originally sited on Frith Hill. For the first thirty years of its existence it was a ‘waiting house,’ for pupils awaiting a place in another, more senior, house. In 1904-05 it achieved full House status within the School. In 1972 the House moved to its present site in purpose-built accommodation on Northbrook. The House provides single-room accommodation for all boarding pupils and internet connection throughout. There is also an IT room and library containing 6 networked PCs, a games room and a TV and common room on the ground floor.
Robinites counts amongst its more distinguished alumni the composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, Sir Oliver Popplewell, the High Court Judge, and Michael Prestwich, Professor of History at Durham University.
