Five-year-old Prince George is preparing for the beginning of the school year, like other children. There are only a few weeks left before Prince William’s eldest son and Kate Middleton return to Thomas’s Battersea school in London, where he started attending classes a year ago. The second stage promises a lot of new and interesting.
Thomas’s School is a private school for boys and girls between the ages of four and 13. In addition to the exact disciplines in the school curriculum, emphasis is placed on art, sports and outdoor activities.

Children will get acquainted with history, geography, scientific-cognitive activity, English, mathematics. Every day they will receive more homework, and in the evening will be required to give ten minutes of reading.
