Admissions Officer – Under School
Charterhouse is a beautiful school and a wonderful place to live and work. It was founded in 1611 and moved to its present magnificent 250 acre site near Godalming in Surrey in 1872. Few schools can offer such a splendid backdrop for teaching and learning, and the School community is very strong, with excellent relationships between pupils and staff.
As part of our ambitious new plans, and building on the success of our Sixth Form we are excited to be moving to full coeducation from the age of 13 and look forward to welcoming our first girls into the Fourth Form in September 2021, the year in which we will celebrate half a century of girls at Charterhouse. There will be girls in every year group from September 2023. The pupil roll will grow over the next decade from 800 today to around 1,000, with the increase representing additional places for girls. We have all seen first-hand the benefits of coeducation in our Sixth Form, which is highly regarded by both boys and girls. We now want to extend those social, cultural and academic advantages to the whole community. With our move to coeducation we aim to bring out the very best in all pupils, in all years.
We are seeking an organised and highly professional Admissions Officer (Under School) to work in a busy department, where the post holder will provide a first class service to prospective parents and others enquiring about admission to the School.
