Welcome to the Elliottonian Web Site


Welcome to the Elliottonian Web Site. This site is for the enjoyment of anyone who was associated with the Iconic Elliott School (now the Ark Putney Academy). This may include Teachers, Pupils and Staff. Although the Elliott School most of us knew was located at Putney (for over fifty years), its roots lay in Southfields and are over one hundred years old. We have resisted the temptation to present a 'flashy' web site, opting instead for an easy to follow, link driven layout. Above you will find links to the relevant sections of the site, these may be further divided depending on content. The website can be viewed on a smartphone, but works much better on a large tablet, laptop or PC


With the advent of Social Media information that used to appear here about things like reunions etc. have moved to the more immediate platforms like Facebook. This website now (2022) is more about keeping alive the memory of an important School that sadly is no longer with us. Be warned the website is very large as there is a lot of pictures, reference magazines, databases and some quite long videos, so please bookmark the site and come back often.


Please remember if you were involved with the Elliott we are always are looking for any old school pictures, Publications, Form Pictures etc. So please think of us next time you are up in the loft having a clear out. Also if you want to send us your written memories we will try and publish them here. Send everything to andy@AndyLambert.com

In simple terms please don’t copy and put them on Facebook, Twitter, or other websites until you have checked that we can give you that right, or there is a very real chance that you could end up being sued by the copyright holder, or worse (as has just happened) their 'money-grabbing' agent!


The website is Sponsored by My Tracking Service. It was designed and is maintained by Andy Lambert (Pupil 1958-63) with much help and guidance from Edmund Hodges (Teacher 1958-85) Who are both happy to hear from former 'inmates' Email: andy@AndyLambert.com

Southfields Elliott was also very progressive for its time.

The connecting Corridor polished by unknown numbers of plimsolls.

Workshop

The well-equipped engineering workshops no longer surviving.

Official Entrance

Then as it is now, this is the Official Entrance to the Building
