Princess Diana's school on market
A primary school attended by Diana, Princess of Wales, is being sold after closing due to falling numbers.

Privately-run Silfield Day School on Gayton Road in King's Lynn, Norfolk, is on the market for 595,000.

The then Lady Diana Spencer was a pupil there for two years from the age of six and her brother Charles also attended.

As well as six-bedrooms in the main house the property also has two classroom blocks and an assembly hall in the grounds.

Estate agent Max Sowerby said: "We do not see a problem with it being switched to residential use but it would be wonderful for it to carry on as a school."

Mr Sowerby said the property could be sold as a large family house but said they had also had interest from developers looking to build in the grounds.

He said: "The development route would perhaps be the most attractive to get the best price but I'm sure the owner would love to sell it as a school."

The school's owners did not want to comment.
