Victoria Beckham has been deemed 'too working class' to send her kids to a posh public school by parents on an internet forum.
The Beckhams are rumoured to be considering the £14,000-a-year Haberdashers' Aske's school in Elstree, Hertfordshire, close to their Sawbridgeworth 'Beckingham Palace' home for their boys when they return to the UK.
However, outraged parents posted their concerns about the family on the Mumsnet internet site, branding the couple 'working class' and claiming the Beckham boys could get by without a good education like 'the Royal Family'.
A poster claiming to be a former pupils of the school wrote: 'Victoria has mentioned in interviews that she never reads books so it would be surprising if someone like her had high academic goals for her dc (darling children) when they could easily get by with poor grades like the Royal Family.'
Despite all the vitriol directed at them over their potential choice of school, the Beckhams are remaining right-lipped about their children's future schooling, whilst a spokesman for Haberdasher's said only:' 'We do not comment on the names of pupils, parents or potential pupils and parents.'
What do you think about this?
Do you think other parents get scared of 'diluting the brand' when wealthy parents can flash the cash and send their kids to any school regardless of their academic merit?
Or do you think there could be serious concerns about media intrusion into other pupils lives if such a high-profile family joined the school?
Or does it all just come down to good old-fashioned jealousy?
