Charterhouse School

Categories: Education

Founded by Thomas Sutton in 1611, the year of his death. An ex-Carthusian priory near Smithfield was used for the school - thus pupils are known as Carthusians. Sutton was buried in the chapel.
The school sold its London site to Merchant Taylors' and moved near Godalming in 1872.
