Jan. 23, 1962 - The Prince of Wales will receive his secondary education at Gordonstoun, a boarding school in Scotland where his father was a student. The 13-year-old heir to the British throne will be enrolled at the school beginning in the summer term, which starts May 1. In 1957, Prince Charles became the first heir apparent to attend a “public” (private) elementary school. Prior to this, immediate heirs to the throne had been tutored privately until they were in their teens, when some of them attended service academies before going to British universities. Prince Charles is now in his final term at Cheam School, where he has lived in a dormitory just as the 90 other boys do. The prince is said to be an average scholar who has been enough of an athlete to become captain of the soccer team. He is also leader of the school choir.
