Prince William and Duchess Kate’s oldest son, six-year-old Prince George will be rejoining his classmates at Thomas’s Battersea school next week and it sounds like he’s got a busy year ahead.
In Year 2 at school, the young prince will be studying math, English, science, history and geography, in addition to religious studies, French, computing, art/design technology, music, drama, P.E. and ballet. That’s quite the demanding schedule compared to the average American six-year-old.

🎂 Happy Birthday Prince George! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share new photographs of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness's sixth birthday. This photograph was taken on holiday with the family by The Duchess of Cambridge. Thank you everyone for all your lovely messages!
“The curriculum presented in Year 2 reflects the increased ability of the children, both academically and socially,” Helen Haslem, Head of Lower School, says on the school’s website. “The children are asked to become more responsible in Year 2; this may start with the children recording their own homework in their diaries.”
His busy school day won’t end when he gets home. Prince William and Duchess Kate will have to survive the homework routine with Prince George just like the rest of us, with thirty minutes of work, including ten minutes of reading, assigned each night.
And we can’t forget the extracurriculars! A 40-minute weekly drama class, a 35-minute French lesson and a music class twice a week, where he’ll learn about the classical masters like Mozart and Beethoven, are just a few of the activities rounding out his schedule.
Prince George won’t be the only young royal headed back to class this year. His younger sister Princess Charlotte will be joining him for her first year according to PEOPLE. “She can’t wait to be with George at big school” an insider says. “She’s so excited about it all.”
