Madonna has been spotted checking out schools in Los Angeles - raising speculation she's set to make her home in her native America in the future.

The queen of pop looks set to send youngsters LOURDES, six, and ROCCO, two, to the exclusive BEVERLY HILLS PREP SCHOOL, which has a roll-call of just 15 mostly international students aged 12 to 18.

The Material Mum, 44, says she wants her children educated on both sides of the Atlantic. She has been spending most of her time in Britain in recent years after marrying English film producer Guy Ritchie, 34.

Lourdes has already been moved from the FRENCH LYCEE in West London to the similarly named LYCEE school near the couple's Los Angeles mansion.
