Britain’s Prince George started school on Thursday but without his pregnant mother Kate to support him because she was suffering from severe morning sickness.

Daily access to organic meals, freshly baked pastries, a pottery room and two libraries sound like the offerings of a luxury wellness resort, but these are just a few of the amenities Prince George will enjoy at his new school. 

Four-year-old George started school this week at Thomas's Battersea in south London. The private prep school charges more than £17,500 pounds (NZ$31,656) per year.

A typical day for the young prince will see him partake in ballet, art, drama, music, ICT, French and PE, all subjects taught from day one. 

The four-year-old will be taught to broaden his mind with classes in 'understanding the world'.

On the menu for lunch is freshly cooked meals which, whenever possible, use organic meat, vegetables and dairy.

Come playtime he'll have stunning views across the river Thames and Battersea Park from the school's rooftop playground.

If he takes an interest in the performing arts he'll have the opportunity to test out his acting ability in any one of the eight concerts the school puts on each year.

Thomas's Battersea will discourage the four-year-old from having best friends, instead encouraging lots of friends to stop others having their feelings hurt.
 
The school of 560 boys and girls between the ages of four and 13 will know the prince as George Cambridge.
 
He'll sport the uniform in a navy v-neck pullover, matching Bermuda-style shorts, long red socks and black shoes.
