Private School tends to conjure up big money: Prince George’s prep school, Thomas’s Battersea, for example, can cost up to 21,786 per year; Eton College, where his father was educated, charges £42,501 per year. In both cases, there are extra charges, for ski trips or music lessons, for example. You’d be forgiven for thinking that independent schools are only accessible to the biggest of spenders. But there are plenty of schools across Britain that offer an excellent education for a significantly lower price.
