Prince George turned five earlier this year, and having already started school, the little royal is growing up fast. And according to new reports, Prince George apparently has a lot to look forward to when he returns to his school next month.

Prince George attends St Thomas’s Battersea, a private school which costs over $25,000 a year per student. And according to Harper’s BAZAAR UK, Prince William’s eldest son will learn several new skills upon his return, with the curriculum including “everything from swimming lessons to ballet classes.” Clearly, the royal is getting a well-rounded education, and will apparently get the chance to develop his “physical skills, stamina, creativity, expression and musicality,” per the school’s official website.

Harper’s BAZAAR UK also notes that students are encouraged to join the choir and to take theater classes, alongside the more traditional subjects such as science, geography, and mathematics.
