The super chic London school of Prince George and Princess Charlotte from yoga club to pottery
“Better death than wrong belief” is the motto above the entrance to St. Thomas’s Battersea, the posh preparatory school attended by Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
William and Kate are probably hoping they won’t if they leave the kids on their doorstep this Thursday at the start of school.
Despite the ominous warning, the most important rule of St. Thomas is “Be kind”.

Headmaster Tobyn Thomas said, “As our students become more self-confident, we try to cultivate strong values in them, with a focus on kindness that encourages them to take on positions of responsibility and leadership.”
Exactly the right place for the future King of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
But if Thomas had his way, the king might not have to settle for GCSEs, he told the Times in March that he was okay with activists wanting to drop the exams.
Instead of focusing on housing, the school emphasizes kindness, courtesy, honesty, respect, perseverance, independence, trust, leadership and humility.

They also get girls and boys to play on mixed cricket teams, while offering many other sports, including soccer, rugby, netball, hockey, gymnastics, and track and field – they can even play golf.
In addition to “traditional” sports, they refer to girls’ football as a “trend club”, alongside pottery, yoga and programming.
The school also has a gym, pottery room, ballet room, two libraries, and a rooftop playground.
This facility offers students the most complete education possible and costs £ 43,860 per year for both children.
Prince George is fourth and Princess Charlotte is second, after spending the summer with the Queen at Balmoral, where pony rides and picnics are royal favorites.
The younger brother Prince Louis will join them in 2022.
The school run
The school is 25 minutes’ drive from their home in Kensington Palace Gardens, where house prices average £ 18 million.
If you want to save some money you can also take bus 148 to Victoria and then change to bus 170 to Battersea, but that would take over an hour.
The fastest and greenest way to get to school would be by bike in just 17 minutes.
