Kate Moss schooled here: good at sport, and very beautiful

Location: Honister Heights, Purley, CR8 1EX

Description: Born in Addiscombe, Croydon, London to Linda Rosina (Shepherd), a barmaid, and Peter Edward Moss, a travel agent - Supermodel 'Kate Moss' attended this very school 'Riddlesdown High School'.

Although not noted for her academic success, she did excel at sports...but of course bigger things beckoned!

Moss was discovered in 1988 at the age of 14 by Sarah Doukas, the founder of Storm Model Management, at JFK Airport in New York City, after a holiday in Jamaica. Her career began when Corinne Day shot black-and-white photographs of her, styled by Melanie Ward, for British magazine The Face when she was 15, in a photo shoot titled 'The Third Summer of Love'.

Kate then went on to become the 'anti-supermodel' of the 1990s in contrast to the 'supermodels' of the moment, such as Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell, who were known for their curvaceous and tall figures.

As a bit of a 'muso', Moss has appeared in music videos such as 'Kowalski' by Primal Scream, 'I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself' by the White Stripes, 'Something About the Way You Look Tonight' by Elton John, 'Sex with Strangers' by Marianne Faithfull and 'Delia's Gone' and 'God's Gonna Cut You Down' by Johnny Cash.

So in conclusion...this school spawned a fashion icon that probably gets more press column inches than anyone else on the planet! Oh and she likes boyfriends who like to play guitar!
