History In 1932, West Heath was used as a girls' boarding school that once taught Diana, Princess of Wales. The buildings at West Heath continue to be used for education; they are home to West Heath School, a day and boarding school for pupils with special educational needs. In 2005, Old House began to be used as a wedding venue, with all proceeds from these events going to the school's bursary fund. When walking around the 32 acres of stunning grounds, you'll find many trees planted to commemorate significant events. For example, Wayne Sleep planted a Beech tree to celebrate the opening of the school.
