Community Carols

As part of our Christmas celebrations (at a number of which we are delighted to welcome the public as well as parents and friends), Charterhouse pupils sing carols at a number of local care and residential centres.

During the pandemic, pupils and staff recorded performances of carols which were shared in the online Godalming Carol Service.

To share our musical resources and Anglican ethos at Christmas time.
