Prince George's New School Is "the Best English Education Money Can Buy"

Earlier this year, the royal family broke with tradition when they announced that Prince George would attend Thomas's Battersea—rather than Prince William's alma mater, Wetherby—for his elementary education.

In advance of the news from the palace, the school, which reportedly costs $23,000 a year, sent the following message out to parents:

"The Duke and Duchess have put a great deal of thought into the choice of their eldest child's first 'big school.' We are honoured that the aims and values of Thomas's reflect those that Their Royal Highnesses would like for Prince George's education. We are deeply conscious of the trust that they, like all Thomas's parents, are placing in us and we hope very much to live up to their expectations."

Now, a new review of the institution by the reputable Good Schools Guide declares that Thomas's Battersea is "a big, busy, slightly chaotic school for cosmopolitan parents who want their children to have the best English education money can buy."

It continues, "That is what they want and, to a large degree, that is what they get."

A Christian organization (though open to children of all faiths) the school is known for its diverse community and its commitment to kindness.

"We aim to engender an ethos of kindness, encouragement, and understanding, in which pupils’ strengths are developed and their weaknesses supported so that each child is challenged without being inhibited," reads the school's website.

As noted above, The Good Schools' assessment calls Thomas's "slightly chaotic." Sounds like the young prince will fit in just fine.

George will start classes come September. Here's hoping we get to see his first-day-of-school photo again this year.
