Princess Charlotte Will Be Joining George At Battersea Primary SchoolMay 24, 2019
The little Princess will join her big brother George at the £17k-a-year school in September, the Palace has confirmed.
Princess Charlotte will become a pupil at the posh south London school St Thomas’s of Battersea.
The Headmaster at Thomas’s Battersea, Simon O’Malley, said: “We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas’s Battersea. We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September.”
Princess Charlotte attended a different nursery to her brother with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge opting to send her to Willcocks Nursery school in South Kensington.
Meanwhile, Prince George was a pupil at Westacre Montessori School in King’s Lynn as they were living in Anmer Hall in Norfolk at the time. Later they moved to Kensington Palace before Charlotte was born.
Thomas’s Battersea teaches around 560 students between the ages of four and 13 and is structured into three levels: Lower School, Middle School and Upper School. Fees per term begin around £6,000.
It also has a theatre, a gymnasium, a ballet room, pottery room, along with two libraries, an Astroturf and a rooftop playground. The children attending the school can also enjoy extracurricular clubs such as pottery, fencing and golf with a lavish lunch to keep them going through the day.
Former students of the school include model Cara Delevingne and singer Florence Welch.
But it doesn’t come cheap to send your kids to the elite London prep school. The school charges the princely sum of £17K-a-year for their pupils.
Prince George was enrolled at Thomas’s Battersea in 2017 and is reportedly known as George Cambridge – at least, it was embroidered on his school bag when he was dropped off on his first day.
