This is where our collection of Elliott School Publications is displayed

This incredible interesting section features Elliott publications of all types, but especially the school magazine and is continually being added to. The school magazines were numbered up until 1957, but then stopped and although originally it was called the 'Elliottonian' it become the 'Trumpeter' and then (somewhat unimaginatively) the 'Elliott Magazine'. There is also one copy of 'The London Central School Magazine' from 1945 because 3 schools had amalgamated because of the war.  

Even if you were nothing to do with the Elliott, you may find some of the articles fascinating. For example the editions from just before the war, which give, a feel for the approaching uncertain times (those readers may also be interested in the "At War" section elsewhere on this website). Condition of some of the older editions is not always 'pristine' but we take what we can get from these rare archive items. 

If you did attend the school at anytime time, please remember that this website is only going to grow with your help! 

So please contact us if you have anything we can include here. Especially if it is any of the missing numbers of The Elliottonian. Also if computers 'leave you cold', email us for alternative arrangements, for example us scanning the item for you and returning it.

Instruction on using the Book Reader

Below are the controls when used with a PC, layout will be slightly different on other devices and different browser, however the principle is the same. You will also find the keys on the keypad and the mouse can control page flip and zoom. In the case of Tablets 'pinch' and 'flip' gestures will also work. There is a Search facility which is not perfect as it has to use optical character recognition, but usually finds what you are looking for. The Thumbnail option (when available) shows you all the pages as thumbnails for quick searching. The Email envelope icon (not shown here) allows you to email the page URL as a link to others, but may only work if you system is setup to allow sending emails from within program in your operating system. The Home icon (little house) should always take you back to that section's menu page.

Please note if you zoom in using your browser control you will find the spiral book binding may increase, but not the book pages. It is better to use the inbuilt zoom button, or pinch with touch screens.

Controls on an iPad etc.

As well as the controls shown below, with a touch screen like those found on iPads you can use your finger to turn pages, double click on the page to zoom in and then pinch to zoom out. If the menu bar shown below is missing, just tap on the page to reveal it.
