Prince George and Marjon...

When young Prince George takes his seat at school today he'll be entering the building that was once our Battersea Practising School back in the 1840's, where student teachers could get teaching practice in a 'real time' situation. It was known at the time as Battersea Village school, also Sir Walter St Johns, and was for a time under the management of one of our two founding Principals James Kay-Shuttleworth (that's his portrait below).  He wont be the first royal visitor - the school was inspected by Prince Albert, and he sponsored at least one of our Battersea students.
