Marlon Richards School
Former pupils were Lily Allen and a reluctant Marlon Richards
Location: Hill House, Hans Place, SW1X 0EP
Description: Of the many schools named 'Hill House School', there is one which is a preparatory day school based in Knightsbridge.
It was founded in September 1951 by Lt-Col Stuart Townend and has several branches located in West London and in Switzerland. Former pupils include Prince Charles and Lily Allen.
It was also the school of one 'Marlon Richards', Keith Richards son.
This was his first real attempt at school after travelling the world with his dad and mother Anita. It turned out that much of the time was spent marching the London streets in crocodile lines in fetching orange uniforms.
Keith wrote in LIFE -
'Marlon needless to say' found this a profound shock, or what he terms in retrospect as a 'bloody nightmare''.
