Description Charterhouse Square School

  • Established: 1925
  • Location: London, England
  • Number of students: 150
  • Language of instruction: English
  • Type of institution: private school.

Charterhouse Square School was founded in 1925, and in 2008 the school became part of Cognita, a worldwide group of schools founded by Chris Woodhead. The concept of the educational institution is to organize a family atmosphere: the students know each other from admission to graduation, become each other a real family. Most students keep in touch with teachers and go to school long after graduation.

The Buddy program works to adapt the students who have just arrived: each “new one” is assigned to a senior pupil who introduces the buddy to the teachers, the location of the necessary rooms in the school building, and helps with study.

At the end of the Charterhouse Square School, students become students of the best schools in London and the surrounding area: Channing, City of London School for Girls, Francis Holland (Clarence Gate), Godolphin and Latymer, James Allen (JAGS), North London Collegiate, Queen's Gate, Queen's College and South Hampstead. 

The school leadership assigns a large role to the independent implementation of homework by students. Teachers do not control the availability of completed lessons, relying on parents with whom a preliminary conversation was held about the benefits and rules of completing homework.
