In Verites we strive to create a happy, healthy, hard-working, cultured and civilised community in the House, a community which should inspire all pupils to make the most of the opportunities and facilities available to them at Charterhouse.
In Verites we strive to create a happy, healthy, hard-working, cultured and civilised community in the House, a community which should inspire all pupils to make the most of the opportunities and facilities available to them at Charterhouse. We aim to ensure our pupils leave Charterhouse well-prepared for life beyond school, with excellent skills, knowledge and qualifications, good manners, decent values, self-respect, respect for others, and confidence as individuals.
In the Verites ‘House Rules’ the General Principles of Respect for Others, Respect for House Property, Self-Respect and Common Sense are stressed above all else.
We do not aim to recruit a particular ‘type’ of pupil into the House, other than seeking energetic, enthusiastic and considerate pupils who are likely to make the most of their opportunities and contribute to a happy boarding community. In Verites we celebrate effort and achievement in all areas of academic and extra-curricular life at Charterhouse, whether as scholars, sportsmen, musicians, artists, actors or whatever may be the particular talents and interests of each pupil. In a boarding community pupils gain immensely from learning to appreciate and respect the talents and interests of others, which may be very different from their own.
