Our open mornings
Our next Open Mornings are on Thursday 21st and Saturday 23rd September 2017 which are opportunities for prospective parents to see the school in operation and meet the staff and current pupils.
During our Open Mornings visiting parents or guardians can visit us anytime between 9.30 am – 11.30am. You will be taken around the school by two of our current Form VI girls.
Groups then return to the Dining Hall for refreshments where you will have the opportunity to speak to the Head and Deputy Head.
If you would like to come and have a look around the school and meet our Head at any other time, please contact us directly regarding this on 01923 772101.
Arrange a visit
Thank you for your interest in our school. I hope this website will give you a glimpse of life at Charlotte House, and encourage you to visit us to see for yourself what we can offer your daughter. We hold Open Mornings during the school year where you can meet the staff, current parents and those who really know the school: the children themselves.
Please contact our Registrar, Mrs Samantha Gillam, on 01923 772101 to find out more details regarding this or to arrange a suitable time to visit.

A non-refundable registration fee of £75 is required. A deposit of £750 is payable when a place is accepted, of which £250 is refundable against the first term’s fees. The remaining £500 is refunded if a child stays until they move to their senior school, but not otherwise, and the repayment is subject to any other final term’s deductions.
Charlotte House School is a registered charity. The school relies on the fees from parents to meet the whole of its operating costs as it does not have the benefit of an endowment fund or any other form of income.
The School offers a limited number of means-tested bursaries awarded according to need, up to a maximum of 75% for girls entering the school at age 7+. Families with an annual income of less than £20,000 would warrant a bursary for 75% fee remission. Levels of financial assistance above this figure will be adjusted in line with income. It is not likely that a bursary would be awarded to a family where relevant annual income exceeds £45,000. In the case of a divorce or separation, both parents will be required to complete financial statements. Bursaries are financed by the school.
Parents who are interested in applying for bursaries need to request a Bursary Application Form.
Once a bursary award has been made, it will be subject to an annual review.
