PRINCE GEORGE will mark a major milestone this year when he embarks on a brand new educational chapter.
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William’s eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, both attend Thomas’ Battersea school in south-west London. The royal siblings have been enjoying a break from homeschooling during the summer holidays.
Prince George will be starting Year 3 when the new term begins in September.
The young Prince will have more opportunities to join different after-school clubs and activities in his new academic year.
He could join the school’s Pheonix Choir of Years 3 and 4 who perform music from a wide range of genres including classical and pop.
All pupils from Year 3 to 8 also have to prepare for an annual cross-country run within their PE lessons.

If the young Prince takes after his mother he could be picked for the school’s running team.
The school also gives pupils in Years 3 to 6 the opportunity to be in its swimming club.
As part of the club, students can be selected to take part in swimming galas against other schools.
Last year, the Duchess of Cambridge took Prince George and Princess Charlotte swimming at a luxury hotel complex during the February half-term.

A source told the Daily Mail at the time that the young royals were very confident swimming.
The source said: “Both the children swam unaided and were super confident.
“They went under the quite forceful jets in the water.
“Kate politely asked us if it was ok for them to switch it on.”

The Cambridges were sitting among Norwich supporters, as the club is close to their country home in Norfolk, when Prince George gave enthusiastic goal celebrations for Aston Villa during the match.
Speaking about the football trip, Prince William said: “I wasn’t celebrating, that was the problem, I was sitting with the home fans.
“George did my bit of celebrating for me.”
