Did You Know...
The House is not in fact named after its location in the Western Garden, but after a member of the Temple-Grenville family named Gilbert West.
As the newest House at Stowe, West was officially opened in 2014 by Viscount Cobham, the direct descendent of the family who built and lived at Stowe.
Our House Colours are ‘argent and sable’ – better known to those without a deep knowledge of heraldry as silver and black! These are based on the coat of arms of the West family.
West House is the only boarding house at Stowe to be jointly run by a Housemaster and Housemistress. Mr and Mrs Johnson began West House in 2014 and continue to take pride in this close-knit and hugely supportive boarding community.
