Don't you guys think that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may wish to send their children to day school rather than strictly a boarding school? Or perhaps wait till they are 13 or so before sending them to any boarding schools?

Just from what I've learned about the Cambridge's parenting over the years, I am of the mind that they will send their children to day school until they're older and also, try and work their evening schedules of duties/appearances where one would always be home with the children. I believe they've stated that when George was really small that this is how they worked it.

There will be nights that both William and Kate have to be out together but I think they will try to limit that as much as possible. I can imagine a kitchen scene with either William and Kate there helping the kids with homework with Lupo resting under the table. These are very hands on parents and they will most likely do whatever they can to ensure that but they have a nice backup crew with a nanny the kids have known since forever.

I get the impression, based on what is known, that Kate (and William) are more hands on that even his parents were. Which is great for their family life.

The reality is that they are able to do it because they aren't the heir and wife right now. Even now they rely on a full time nanny, a housekeeper who babysits at times, and carol. They may be more hands on then Diana and Charles but they have plenty of help. And they have had that luxury.

When William is Prince of Wales that will change. Likely why his grandmother sad fathet allow him such a leisurely calendar now, to enjoy it while he can. He will be expected to be like his father, when Prince of Wales. There will be more travel in the UK and abroad. There will be more events for them both. they wint always be able to do day events when the kids are in school and be home. And when the kids are in school, they won't be able to do tours. Nor be shipped to grandmas as they will not miss school.

Yes I don't think they will start boarding school early. I think it's exactly the reason they chose a school that goes till 13. There is little chance the kids won't go to boarding school at some point. Both patebts grew up where that was the norm. Not only in their family but friends. The kids of their friends will.

W/ Pippa getting married & perhaps starting her own family in the near future, Grandma Carole may not be quite as available as she has been as she'll have additional grandchildren with whom she'll also want to spend time.

Let us not forget that Grandma Carole works full time and has a reasonable sized business to run.

Agreed. I doubt Mrs. Middleton is the type for sitting and waiting for a visit of her children and grandchildren

Prince George will be going to a “busy” and “slightly chaotic” London school where the cosmopolitan capital is reflected in the 19 different languages spoken in pupils’ homes, according to a schools guide.

The four-year-old, who will one day be king, begins full-time education in September when he joins one of three reception classes at private day school Thomas’s Battersea.

The school, where fees cost from £17,604 a year, was reviewed as “A big, busy, slightly chaotic school for cosmopolitan parents who want their children to have the best English education money can buy. That is what they want and, to a large degree, that is what they get”.

i wonder if the new school follows the Montessori system like george's old nursery...

also, seeing thomas' school has 4 branches, and one is in kensington, i wonder why WK didn't choose that branch instead of the battersea one, as it is closer to their home.

If I remember correctly, the Battersea location has a kindergarten that Kensington didn't have. So the thought was that they picked that location so Charlotte could join her brother there in time. Having the kids in the same school location.

I thought the Tatler entry for the school in one of the threads below was interesting in that the three main secondary schools the boys head to are Eton, Kings Wimbledon and St Paul's. Let's hope George is smart..

He won't have to be smart.
He'll go to school wherever his parents like!

(I'm wondering if he'll attend Eton or Marlborough when the time comes).

Oh how I wish William and Kate would accept that things have changed and send the children to a co-ed school
This sums up my view

It states the obvious, but the real world is not segregated. In co-educational schools, girls and boys work collaboratively, exchange ideas and debate issues. Importantly the presence of both genders adds to the richness and diversity of thinking and learning that fills all classrooms in all schools.
Outside the classroom, girls and boys stand side-by-side in leadership positions, play sport, attend outdoor education camps, combine in music groups, perform in plays and musicals and share recreational space.

In short, girls and boys interact with each other as equals in all aspects of everyday life. In doing so, they build a sound platform for personal growth, peer connectedness, relationships with other people and the development of appropriate value systems.

Thomas's Battersea is co ed. So William and Kate are sending George to a coeducational school. We don't know where he is going to go after. Since he is just 4 now, that doesn't have to be decided now

I would just hope this Cambridge kids get a chance to meet other kids from different walks of life. There's nothing like being exposed to diversity from an early age.

Clearly Thomas's Battersea fits the bill. According to the schools guide, students speak 19 different languages.

They have chosen a co-ed school where they will send both their childrn for a primary education.

As regards secondary schools in the UK, most good schools are single sex. There choice for a co-ed secondary school education in the south of england will be limited at best.
