What is Reach Out?
The most important thing we do as a School is equip children with the knowledge and skills they need to leave Charterhouse and make their own, informed and balanced decisions in the world beyond..
Our REACH OUT programme provides all pupils with a safe forum for discussion and a place to access information – such as an understanding of positive mental health strategies, an awareness of illegal or addictive substances, knowing what to look for in a university, or a whole range of topics in between.
The programme falls broadly under three themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. It is a spiral curriculum, structured to ensure that topics are addressed and revisited at age-appropriate moments, so that pupils may build upon their prior learning and understanding.
Sessions usually take place on Monday afternoons and include discussions, small group workshops and assemblies led by Tutors or Heads of Year. Regular lectures with external specialists also help pupils set these ideas within a wider context.
The guiding principles behind Reach Out are embedded within the School’s Values and so are reflected and reinforced throughout all aspects of School life.
