Prince George faces demanding Year 2 school curriculum – no rest for the young royal

Prince George faces demanding Year 2 school curriculum – no rest for the young royal

Prince William and Kate’s son will be taught maths, English, science, history, geography, religious studies, French, computing and physical education. George, six, will also enjoy a range of other subjects including art, design technology, music and drama.

In the curriculum guide, Helen Haslem, head of lower school, says: “The curriculum presented in Year 2 reflects the increased ability of the children, both academically and socially.

“It sees the completion of the basic skills in literacy and numeracy in Key Stage 1.

“Individual strengths and talents begin to emerge, which you will undoubtedly begin to see.

“The children are asked to become more responsible in Year 2. This may start with the children recording their own homework in their diaries.

“This increasing independence allows for a smooth transition to the Prep School.”

George goes back to school after his long summer holiday on September 5.

This year, he will be joined by his younger sister Princess Charlotte, who previously attended Willcocks Nursery School.

Adorable Charlotte, four, will be entering Reception at Thomas’s Battesea, which costs over £6,000 a term.

The pair are “very friendly” and William is apparently especially chatty with other parents and even heads the gym with them.

The source said: “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 describes itself as a “busy, thriving, purposeful school” on its website.

It is attended by 560 boys and girls between the ages of four and 13.

The school’s most important rule is to “be kind”.

The website says: “Whilst we are proud of our record of senior school entrance and scholarship successes, we place a greater emphasis on a set of core values, which include kindness, courtesy, confidence, humility and learning to be givers, not takers.

“We hope that our pupils will leave this school with a strong sense of social responsibility, set on a path to become net contributors to society and to flourish as conscientious and caring citizens of the world.”

George, Charlotte, and Prince Louis, one, also have Norland nanny Maria Borrallo to help bring them up.
