Sir Elton John and partner David Furnish have chosen a school to for their two-month-old boy Zachary.
The tot won’t heading to school anytime soon, but he will be attending St. George’s School in Windsor, Berkshire, South East England.
The exclusive school — which is just a short distance from their $17 million home — was established in 1348 by King Edward III to provide choristers for nearby Windsor Castle’s St George’s chapel, which the British monarch attends.
Sir Elton would also like his boy to start attending the St. George’s nursery program – which costs $16,000 a year and takes children at the age of three.
Apparently Sir Elton took a private tour of the school on Monday and discussed Zachary’s educational future with St. George’s head teacher Roger Jones.
“It was no surprise when Sir Elton said his first choice of school for Zachary was the royal choir school here,” a source told British newspaper The Sun.
“It has an incredible music department and staff. All the children play an instrument from the age of about seven — and the piano is the favourite.
“Pupils all learn to sing and become part of the choir, and the best join the 24-boy choristers who sing for the queen in St George’s Chapel.”
The school has quite a reputation of royal pupils, including Prince Edward’s daughter Lady Louise Windsor who is currently a pupil, and Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson also sent their youngest daughter Princess Eugenie there.
The school will cost approximately $36,000-a-year for the superstar. Yikes! And that’s not even college, but being Elton John, I’m sure he can afford it.
