Royal School Hunting: Kate Middleton, Prince William Looking For A School For Prince George

Choosing the best school for your child is quite a tedious task. You want to ensure that your son or daughter will get the best of education an institution can offer, not to mention the kind of environment he/she will be surrounded with. For a royal, that is no different, and Kate Middleton and Prince William revealed that they are already looking for the potential school little Prince George will be attending come September 2017.

Kate and William Might Move To London

According to Daily Mail, Prince William's former prep school is the frontrunner of the possible choices for the 2-year-old prince. If the young royal family decided to move to London at Kensington Palace, Prince George might attend Wetherby School.

The school where William went to from the age of 4 is only a 15-minute walk from the palace. It is an all-boys school with around 250 students and charges some £6,540 per term.

Also part of the consideration on the type of school, whether it's an all-boys or mixed, could be little Princess Charlotte, who will be following her brother soon enough.

Kate Prefers Rural Norfolk

But reports say that Princess Catherine prefers the rural setting in Norfolk, where Prince George is attending nursery at Westacre Montessori Nursery. Should they chose to stay in their Norfolk mansion, Amner Hall, one of the favorite schools is Beeston Hall. At £5,535 per term, the school offers lots of activities particularly those that involve outdoor learning. It is also a co-ed facility, so Charlotte can join her brother when she comes of school age, per Daily Mail.

Other recommended schools, as listed by The Telegraph, include Flitcham Primary Academy, Glebe House School, Culford School, Sandringham and West Newton Church of England Primary School, and Gresham's Pre-Prep School.

"Clearly, there is a range of options for George in both settings - excellent schools, both state and independent in both," Susan Hamlyn, the director of The Good Schools Guide, told Daily Mail.
