London — Kensington Palace says Prince George will attend the Thomas's Battersea prep school beginning in September.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced their choice on Friday. The palace says the couple is "delighted to have found a school where they are confident George will have a happy and successful start to his education."

Thomas's Battersea is a private school with more than 500 children aged 4 to 13. George will be four in July.

The royal toddler joins a host of famous faces who attended the school, including Cara Delevingne and her sisters Poppy and Chloe as well as Florence and the Machine's Florence Welch.

The school says its most important rule is to "be kind." It places emphasis "on a set of core values, which include kindness, courtesy, confidence, humility and learning to be givers, not takers."

Ben Thomas, the headmaster, says the school is looking "forward to welcoming him and all of our new pupils to the school in September."
