Prince George to attend Thomas’s School Battersea
Prince George is to attend a private primary school where the first rule is to “be kind” and pupils are discouraged from having best friends.
Thomas’s Battersea is a few miles from the family residence in Kensington Palace and charges parents £6,110 a term.
Established 40 years ago, the school is described on its website as being a “busy, thriving, purposeful” school, which has 540 boys and girls between the ages of four and 13.
George’s parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, said in a statement: “Their Royal Highnesses are delighted to have found a school where they are confident George will have a happy and successful start to his education.”
Ben Thomas, the school’s headmaster, said of the news: “We are honoured and delighted that their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen Thomas’s Battersea for Prince George. We greatly look forward to welcoming him and all of our new pupils to the school in September.”
Prince George, who is third in line to the throne, attends nursery at the Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk.
The Dragon School welcomes new headmaster, Crispin Hyde-Dunn
The Chairman of Governors of Dragon School, Professor Roger Ainsworth, has announced that Dragon governors have appointed Crispin Hyde-Dunn, currently Headmaster of Abingdon Preparatory School, to be the next Head of the Dragon.
Crispin Hyde-Dunn will take up the post in September 2017 when John Baugh steps down after 15 years’ inspirational leadership.
Roger said: “As governors, we are excited that we have found someone who understands the make-up and inheritance of the Dragon, and at the same time will take us forward to the next stage of our journey with imagination, energy, enthusiasm and commitment.”
Crispin added: “It is a great privilege to be invited to become the next Head of the Dragon. The school is world renowned with a distinguished history and one which enjoys a unique quality and vibrancy among its pupils, parents and staff. I am very excited to have the opportunity to lead such a distinctive and talented school community, building upon its tremendous successes, as well as continuing to evolve the school, as we anticipate the changing needs in the years ahead.”
