As part of a 'persuasive writing' assignment, the students wrote to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince George's dad and mum) asking for Prince George to be enrolled in the school (for later), according to the Express.
While Prince George won't be attending the little school in the future, each student did receive a personal letter back from the Duke and Duchess (mainly because as amazing as Prince George is...he can't quite write yet).
In the letters, Kate and William commended the school on their initiative and praised their school.
Associate headteacher Amy Bekker-Wrench told Express, "I'm very very keen on the children writing for a purpose and when it came to our unit on persuasive writing we talked about who we could write to. We decided it would be amazing if Prince George could be enrolled at the school because that would encourage other people to join.""We were over the moon getting these letters back, they just landed on my desk. The story got a lot of publicity and certainly got people talking about us and got us a lot of publicity, and since then it has just gone a bit mad. We've got 45 pupils now and there's hardly a week that goes by when we're not showing prospective families round the school.""Very frequently the visitors will say they heard about the letters from the Royal family - only yesterday someone said that. The letters from the children came from the heart and I think it probably did show the school off and that got people interested."The number of enrollments plummeted as people moved away from the local village, with only 19 students enrolled in September last year. Resulting in local authorities considering the closure of the school. But thankfully for Prince George and his super royal powers, the school will now remain open.Thanks George.CLICK THROUGH the gallery to see Prince George grow up:
