The Curriculum

We take immense pride in offering a well-rounded curriculum that blends both breadth and depth, where our pupils work ahead of the age-related expectations. Our approach to education extends beyond the fundamentals of Literacy and Numeracy, ensuring that our pupils receive a holistic and enriching learning experience. This includes engaging lessons in Science, History, Geography, Art and PSHE. Our pupils also benefit from specialist teaching in Spanish, Music and Drama.

Sports & the Arts

Sports provision is a key part of the curriculum with our children enjoying the benefits of the excellent amenities on our doorstep. Our pupils play around three times as much as their counterparts at state primaries, enjoying up to four hours of PE and sport each week. We believe that creativity is at the core of individuality, which is why Creative Arts play a key role in our curriculum and are further supported through co-curricular activities and clubs. Throughout the school day, pupils actively engage in various creative activities such as art, drama, dance, and school music groups. They also have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of peripatetic music lessons.

Pastoral Care

At Charterhouse Square School, we are determined to help every child develop courage, honesty, kindness, and confidence. We believe these values are essential for success in today’s competitive world. We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional pastoral care offering, priortising a strong sense of community among our staff and pupils, fostering a true sense of family.

Recent Scholarships

Year after year, we are proud to see our children secure places at some of the most prestigious schools in the Capital – with many winning scholarships and exhibitions.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

I passionately believe that in order for children to achieve their true potential they have to be happy and feel safe, supported and encouraged. This belief drives every decision that we make – the children are at the heart of all that we do. We have very high aspirations for our children and I believe that helping them to build high levels of confidence is the key to achieving this. A child who is confident enough to take a risk, accept a challenge and come out of their comfort zone, is the child who will thrive and flourish in school and indeed in life.

Outstanding Characteristics

Charterhouse Square School is unlike any other, with a spirit all of its own. Located in the heart of The City of London, our pupils thrive in an environment surrounded by endless opportunities. We seamlessly combine academic excellence with an equal focus on providing a safe and nurturing environment that serves as a home away from home — where we embrace a first name basis between teachers and pupils, and we choose not to have a school uniform, allowing every child to be themselves.
