Charterhouse, originally Sutton's Hospital in Charterhouse, is a prominent boys independent or public school. Founded by Thomas Sutton in London in 1611 on the site of the old Carthusian monastery in Charterhouse Square, Smithfield, it is one of the original nine English public schools as defined by the Public Schools Act 1868. Today pupils are still referred to as Carthusians, and ex-pupils as Old Carthusians or OCs. It is one of Britain's most expensive schools, with annual boarding and tuition fees per pupil of more than £27,000.

An illustration of Geoffrey Chaucer as a Canterbury pilgrim.  Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1343 – 25 October 1400?) was an English author, poet, philosopher, bureaucrat, courtier and diplomat.
