Being a founding member of an all-girls house has been such an honourable experience and I am excited to see the school go completely co-ed next year. Our housemistress has developed a comfortable and nurturing environment for all pupils who are lucky enough to board there.

Founded in 2019, Sutton is named after Thomas Sutton, the founder of Charterhouse.
Located in one of the original buildings at the heart of the School (from September 2021), Sutton combines the splendour of the Victorian gothic with a newly-refurbished welcoming and contemporary interior. The ‘private side’ was originally designed by the first headmaster of Charterhouse in Godalming (having moved from London in 1872), William Haig Brown, for his wife, nine children and servants. The House forms part of Founder’s Court and is adjacent to the central café Oak, in Scholar’s Court, where the girls and boys in ‘Old School’ have their meals.
