The new school year is almost in session, and Prince George will be heading back to St Thomas’s Battersea. The little Prince is going back to school on Thursday, Sept. 6.
This might disappoint you, but it is unlikely that William and Kate will share any official portraits of Prince George starting school this year.
Even though we had the chance to see George on his first day at school last year, this time press have not been invited to cover this week’s event.
According to HELLO!: “Prince George’s time at school is private and although the Duke and Duchess shared an image from his first day at primary school last year, they won’t do it every year.”
It will be just like when George started at nursery: The Cambridges shared with us a set of portraits of George attending his first day at Westacre Montessori in January 2016. However, there weren’t any official photos in the next years.
But we still have a great news for the royal fans. You may wait a little, but you’ll have the chance to see George and Charlotte on Friday 12 October. They will attend Princess Eugenie’s wedding in Windsor.
It’s still not officially confirmed, but there are speculations that the siblings will act as a pageboy and bridesmaid.
Little Louis is still too young, but we hope we’ll see him on the wedding with his mum Kate.
Anyway, Prince George attends St Thomas’s Battersea, a private school which costs over $25,000 a year per student.
He will learn several new skills upon his return, with the curriculum including “everything from swimming lessons to ballet classes.”
George will embark on a year-long curriculum that includes core subjects such as math, English, science, history, geography and religious studies.
He’ll also be taught by specialist teachers in the subjects of French, computing, art/design, technology, music, drama.
As the Thomas’s Battersea curriculum guide explains, “Year 1 sees the beginning of a more formalized learning program. Children in Year 1 become increasingly independent and confident and begin to relish the opportunity to tackle new challenges presented to them across the broad curriculum.”
George will have some work to do after classes. Reading homework is sent home every night, and a spelling rule or pattern is sent home each week.
