The ritzy prep school of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 6-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, discourages students from making any best friends.
Journalist Jane Moore recently dished on her insider knowledge of the school, Thomas’s Battersea, saying on the British talk show “Loose Women” (via the Sun), “There are signs everywhere saying be kind, that’s the ethos of the school. They don’t encourage you to have best friends.”
Moore explained that the school works extra hard to make sure children don’t feel left out and instead focus on kindness as well as strong educational values.
“There’s a policy that if your child is having a party, unless every child in the class is invited, you don’t give out the invites in class, which I think is quite a good thing as you don’t feel excluded,” she said.
She added, “It’s a really great little school actually for the reasons I think that it really focuses on kindness, it’s a really big thing in that school and the pastoral care is amazing.”
And the school doesn’t just focus on the students. Parents are also encouraged to participate and be a part of the community.
“It’s a school that really expects parental involvement,” Moore said. “The parents are very heavily involved in the school, so they [Kate and William] will be as well.”
Tuition costs roughly $26,000 a year, though Charlotte — who started attending the school in 2019 — cost her parents only $25,000 because she gets a sibling discount as her brother Prince George, 8, is also a student there, according to the Sun.
Thomas’s Battersea educates children ages 4 to 13 and teaches specialty classes such as art, ballet, drama, music and physical education.
