Cost per term

Charlotte will join Reception when the new school year starts, with fees of £6,305 per term.

As Princess Charlotte is the second in the family to attend the school, her fees will be almost 4% lower than those of Prince George, according to Admissions.

If the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decide to send Prince Louis to Thomas's Battersea, too, they will pay £5,790 per term.

There are added charges for extra curricular activities, such as ballet, drama and music lessons.

The school

Thomas’s Battersea, which is rated as outstanding by Ofsted, teaches around 560 boys and girls between the ages of four and 13.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s curriculum is compiled of subjects such as art, ballet, drama, ICT, French, Music and PE all taught by specialist teachers.

Princess Charlotte is likely to have a head start in the ballet department, as it’s reported she’s already taking private lessons.

Princess Charlotte’s schedule

According to the school’s website, children will have the opportunity to play and explore as well as to “have a go and persevere; be creative and solve problems; form good relationships; be safe, secure and happy”.

Helen Haslem, Head of Lower School, added: “The emphasis in the Lower School is on enjoyment and this is embedded in our broad curriculum and our most important school rule of 'Be Kind'.”

“Children quickly settle into the routines and expectations of the school where the atmosphere is noticeably happy, yet stimulating in nature. Our foremost aim is to ensure that every child feels safe, happy and confident at school. We help to create an environment in which children are eager to learn and to take an active part in own learning.”
