Prince George is set to learn how to be a "giver, not taker" when he starts primary school this year.

The three-year-old royal will join Thomas's Battersea school in September this year, which is located a short walk away from Kensington Palace, and the educational institution pride themselves in teaching their pupils the "core values", which include "kindness, courtesy, confidence, humility".

Speaking about their main principles in a newsletter posted on the school's website, the headmaster, Ben Thomas, wrote: "Whilst we are proud of our record of senior school entrance and scholarship successes, we place a greater emphasis on a set of core values, which include kindness, courtesy, confidence, humility and learning to be givers, not takers.

"We offer a rich and broad curriculum, with Art, Ballet, Drama, ICT, French, Music and PE all taught by specialist teachers from a child's first day in school."

And Ben vows to transform their students into "conscientious and caring citizens".

The post continued: "We hope that our pupils will leave this school with a strong sense of social responsibility, set on a path to become net contributors to society and to flourish as conscientious and caring citizens of the world."

And the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - who also have 22-month-old daughter Princess Charlotte together - don't want their oldest child's attendance to change the "values or ethos" of the school.

Speaking previously, Ben said: "The Duke and Duchess have made it clear that they do not wish Prince George's attendance at Thomas's to change its aims, values or ethos in any way.

"They would like, as far as is possible, for him to enjoy the same education that all of our pupils receive and for them to join the school community as all of our new parents do."
