Prince George's new school in Battersea is "busy" and "slightly chaotic", according to The Good Schools Guide.

The four-year-old will enrol in one of three reception classes at Thomas's School in Battersea, a private day school in Battersea High Street, this September.

A school where yearly fees are more than £17,000 per year, the review says it is "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."

The assessment believes that while there are many opportunities for pupils to excel, it also concedes that "withdrawn types might find it all overwhelming".

It added: "Academically, teaching deemed pretty good, though lots of coaching still occurring in the last years. 'Just as insurance,' say the parents.

"We did feel that this was definitely more about anxious and ambitious parents than inadequately taught children."

With 19 different foreign languages spoken at the homes of the children and approximately 25 percent of pupils said to be on the English as an Additional Language (EAL) register, The Good Schools Guide review says Thomas's Battersea is "probably the most cosmopolitan of all the Thomas's schools" and it appears to "make the most of this range of different cultures".

Thomas's School Battersea forms one of three private preparatory schools in London, including Clapham, Fulham, with its alumni including musician Florence Welch, of Florence and the Machine, model Cara Delevingne and Game of Thrones actress Tara Fitzgerald.

The branch has 543 pupils, aged from four to 13 years old, with entrance said to be "competitive and oversusbcribed" as parents are suggested to begin registration preferably at birth.

It also has its own fleet of buses which transport pupils from Kensington to a variety of venues, while there is a new music centre which accommodates 245 individual lessons each week on instruments which range from piano to cornet.
