Charterhouse Christmas Holiday Residential

Charterhouse and Future Foundations Christmas Holiday Leadership & Lifeskills Programme

Charterhouse is exploring the option of keeping open boarding houses for pupils who are unable to return home or stay with a guardian during the Christmas holidays.

They want to provide a supportive, safe and productive environment, which will cater to the needs of each age of pupil.  Charterhouse is working closely with Future Foundations to provide 24-hour pastoral care and a full programme of activities onsite and offsite.

Charterhouse is asking all parents who would wish to consider this arrangement to register their interest via the link in the email from the School dated 13th October.  This will allow Future Foundations to be booked for this, and to plan the provision to be provided. An overview of what would be provided and the weekly structure of activities and trips is detailed below.

Please note, we need a minimum number of students, to be able to offer the provision as outlined on this page.

Please complete by 21st October 2020, the Charterhouse survey, using the link in the email from the School dated 13th October.


The activities and pastoral care will run from Friday 11th December 2020 to 12th January 2021

We would expect pupils to stay for the entire period, as this offer is designed for pupils who are unable to travel home, or stay with a guardian.


Charterhouse will host the programme throughout

  • Pupils will stay on site in School boarding houses
  • Charterhouse will open up their dining hall and offer meals three times a day
  • Future Foundations aim to run off-site excursions each week (depending on current restrictions and local guidelines)
