Third in line to the throne starts at Thomas's Battersea this September

Prince GeorgeThe Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to send Prince George to school in Wandsworth. The young royal, who turns four in July, will join independent prep school Thomas's in Battersea High Street.

Headmaster Ben Thomas said, "We are delighted 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 our parents, are placing in us and we hope very much to live up to their expectations."

Thomas's Battersea is mixed sex and part of the Thomas's group which also has schools in Kensington, Fulham and Clapham. It provides education for both boys and girls up to the age of 13 and aims to provide a 'rich and broad' curriculum as well as placing great emphasis 'on a set of core values which include kindness, courtsey, confidence, humility and learning to be givers, not takers'.

Fees start at £5,653 per term for reception and pupils go on to further their education at a variety of independent day and boarding schools, as well as local Wandsworth maintained schools such as Burntwood and St John Bosco College.

Prince George's younger sister Princess Charlotte, who is two in May, is due to start nursery in London this year.
