Princess Charlotte will attend same £18,915-a-year school as big brother George

Princess Charlotte will attend the same school as her big brother Prince George, Kensington Palace has announced.

She will start at Thomas's Battersea in south London in September – a private school which will cost the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge £18,915 a year.

Simon O'Malley, headmaster at Thomas's Battersea, 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."

Charlotte, who turned four earlier this month, has been attending Willcocks Nursery in Kensington since last January.

It's not surprising that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had decided to send their second child to the school, as George is said to be doing very well there.

The little prince is in Year 1 and according to the other parents he's just like one of the other kids – and he even has a nickname, PG.

One told Vanity Fair : "He's very popular and has lots of friends, and there's very little fuss made about who he is."

As Charlotte is the Cambridges' second child at the school, they will get to pay a slightly reduced rate of £6,305 -per-term.

Kate and Wills are regulars on the school run, so having both kids in the same place will make things a lot easier for them.

The source continued: "Either William or Kate do drop off, and they are always very friendly.

"William particularly loves to have a chat with some of the other parents and he works out with some of the mums at the Harbour Club after drop off. He's very chatty and amiable."

Thomas's Battersea offers a varied curriculum, with lessons in ballet and French running alongside the more traditional subjects.

The website states: "Our ambition is to develop in each pupil an enquiring mind and a life-long love of learning.

"Through enthusiastic, inspiring teaching, excellent resources, and a broad and balanced curriculum, pupils are well prepared not merely for the demands of senior school entrance examinations, but also for a rich and fulfilling future.

"The National Curriculum is our starting point, but in each subject work is planned to stimulate and challenge. We have high expectations of our pupils and track progress carefully so that the standard and pace of the work suits the individual and ensures that all fulfil their potential."
