Prince George will be dropped off for his first day at school by his mum and dad, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kensington Palace has confirmed. The future king, aged four, will attend his first day at Thomas’s Battersea in London alongside his parents next Thursday.
A review describes the £17,604-a-year school as “big, busy” and “slightly chaotic” that offers the “the best English education money can buy”. The school has 560 boys and girls aged from four to 13, with around 20 in each class. Kate and William will be met by the headmistress of the school when they drop George off on his first day.
George, who has been enrolled in one of three reception classes, will be exposed to a “range of different cultures” and “19 different foreign languages”. The school is so oversubscribed, parents register their children at birth.
