A Norfolk convent and small part of a school which starred in a television series called Bad Habits has gone up for sale.
The Sacred Heart Convent and school, in Mangate Street, Swaffham gained stardom when it was filmed by Channel 5 for a series about a group of five party girls spending a month with the school’s sisters.
The school was run by a religious group known as the Daughters of Divine Charity with around 160 pupils across a nursery, lower and senior schools. It has been educating children since 1914.
A new Voluntary Aided state school successfully opened on the site in September 2019 with around 80 pupils and expects to welcome even more students this September.
Agents Brown & Co said the part of the property for sale could be suitable for conversion to residential or commercial use.
It is for sale for a price on application.
