David and Victoria Beckham have enrolled their three sons into an English private school.

The soccer player and his fashion designer wife decided to enter Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and five-year-old Cruz into classes at the school near their 'Beckingham Palace' home in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire.

The family are leaving their Los Angeles home for three months so Victoria can prepare for London Fashion Week in February and ahead of David's potential loan deal to English team Tottenham Hotspur.

The school fees will cost the couple anything from £3,000 to over £5,000 a term and the three boys are set to arrive tomorrow (06.01.11).

A source told The Sun newspaper: "All the staff are talking about it - everyone in the school knows. All three boys are coming. Everyone is looking forward to seeing them."

The 35-year-old sportsman is currently trying to negotiate a three-month loan move to Tottenham Hotspur, who are based in London, from his regular club Los Angeles Galaxy.

The source added: "The family's stay in England doesn't mean David has signed for Tottenham.

"It could be he won't even sign for another club during his break from Los Angeles Galaxy."
