The eclectic array of talent in Saunderites ensures that life in the House is never boring. With a plethora of academic scholars, outstanding sportsmen and gifted musicians and artists, the standards are inevitably high. This is not to say that it is an elitist House; first-timers are encouraged and fostered, while the facilities on offer, such as the computer room (the best of any House), ensure that there is always something to do even if you are not keen on mainstream activities.
Year 13 House Monitor
Saunderites is the ‘senior’ House in the School because, until the 1950s, the Headmaster of Charterhouse was also the Housemaster of Saunderites. The House is named after its first Housemaster, Dr Saunders, who was also Headmaster from 1832-53.
From September 2021, Saunderites – with all its pupils, Housemaster, Matron and House Team – is in its new home across the playing fields, in a brand-new boarding House in between Daviesites and Sutton. The Ben Travers Theatre is very close by and it is just a short walk to the Queen’s Sports Centre, and the Central Dining Room.
