Regarded to be among the most prestigious schools in the world due to the school's history and influence

Charterhouse School is a public school located between Hurtmore and Godalming, Surrey, England. The school is one of the nine most prestigious public schools listed in the Public Schools Act of 1868.

The school was founded in London by Thomas Sutton in 1611 on the site of a former Carthusian monastery, in the town of Smithfield. The pupils still bear the name of Carthusians. Originally reserved for boys, Charterhouse welcomed girls from the 1970s.

A 2017 study of entries in Who's Who found that a man born in 1847 was 274 times more likely to be a member of the British elite if he attended one of the top schools (Eton, Harrow, Rugby, Westminister, Charterhouse, Merchant Taylor's, Shrewsbury, St Paul's and Winchester College). In contrast, the youngest men included in the study, born in 1967, were only 67 times more likely to be in the British elite if they attended one of the schools.[1]
