Prince George could be sent away to an elite boarding school outside of London

Term time is just around the corner for students up and down the country – and Prince George will be preparing for a new school year like any other child.

The young royal turned eight years old this summer and it could be time for him to pack his satchel and head off to a new school.

Prince George currently attends St Thomas's day school in Battersea, but its thought that the little prince might follow in his father Prince William's footsteps and move to boarding school.

What school will Prince George go to?

Prince Harry and Prince William both attended Ludgrove School in Berkshire and many believe that Kate and Will might choose the same school for Prince George.

These rumours were encouraged after the Daily Mail recently reported that Kate Middleton and Prince William had been looking at property and schools in the Berkshire region – where they have plenty of family and friends – including Kate Middleton's parents.

However, George's current school – Thomas's – currently enrols children up to the age of 13 and with George's younger sister, Princess Charlotte, also a pupil at the private London school, this could rule out a move.

A report by the Mirror said that "it's more likely the family would stay based in London during term time and opt for flexi boarding options for the children in Berkshire, although nothing has been confirmed yet."

"Nothing has been decided and of course they could very well decide to keep the children at Thomas’s, but William and Kate have recently visited schools in the Berkshire area, which has got a lot of people talking," a source told the Daily Mail.
