'Pob lwc', Princess Leonor! Royal teen heads for sixth form in Wales

SPAIN'S future Queen is likely to be experiencing a rollercoaster of nerves and excitement today as she gets ready to start a new adventure: Still only 15 years old, Crown Princess Leonor will not only be living away from home for the first time, but will be doing so in another country altogether.

The Royal youngster, who turns 16 on Hallowe'en, can probably now consider herself an honorary Princess of Wales: She won a place at a prestigious, forward-thinking private sixth-form college in the Vale of Glamorgan by taking two extremely tough exam sessions – the first of which is completely anonymous, so none of the board or staff has any idea who the candidate may be.

United World College of the Atlantic (UWC Atlantic) sets up the entrance exams this way so as to avoid any possible 'screening out', especially as it likes to attract intelligent, potentially gifted students from all cultures, countries and walks of life as part of its 'liberal, progressive and radical' educational policy, its 'global ethos' and 'strong focus on local and global sustainability'.
