Weekites has been a huge part of my Charterhouse career as it has enabled me to form the best friendships, not just in my year but in all the years around me. Throughout the House there is dominant family atmosphere where everyone communicates together no matter the age. As a House we are very proud of our success in the recent years as we have been dominant on the sports pitches winning almost every Senior House Competition in the past few years. However, our success comes in many other forms such performing brilliantly in House music as well as selectively recording high effort grades. It is safe to say that my Charterhouse experience would not be the same without this House and the people in it.

Originally one of the four Houses located on Charterhouse Hill, Weekites was bought from its founding Housemaster, the Reverend Weekes, in 1896. It moved to its present site on Queen’s Drive in 1973.
The current building was designed by the late Richard Gilbert Scott (OC and son of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the architect for the Charterhouse Memorial Chapel).
Weekites accommodates 62 boys in total. There are four twin rooms for boys in the Yearlings and the rest of the boys are accommodated in single study-bedrooms.
Conveniently located next to the Central Dining Room, and near to the Queen’s Sports Centre, Crown and sports fields, Weekites House provides pupils with the chance to have some space and peace away from the busyness of the main school site and classrooms.
