The Elliott School in England has a long history staring in 1904 when it opened in Merton Road Southfields SW18 serving the surrounding Wandsworth and Wimbledon area. In 1956 it moved to Pullman Gardens Putney SW15 to become a Flagship Comprehensive School.In 2012 and not without some controversy the Elliott School effectively closed and the site is now known as the ARK Putney Academy.

Detail: The original school had been in Merton Road Southfields SW18 between Burr Road and Brookwood Road and was next to the Riversdale School. It became a comprehensive school In 1956 when the Elliott Schools and Huntingfield Secondary Modern School amalgamated on a new site in Pullman Gardens Putney SW15, to become Elliott Comprehensive School, officially opened in 1957 by Rt Hon Hugh Gaitskell.

By 2000 the school building had deteriorated badly and despite several plans nothing was done until 2013 when the school moved into temporary building and a major refurbishment got underway.

There are very many notable alumni and they include, Pierce Brosnan (actor) Peter Green (Founder Fleetwood Mac), Ed Spevock (musician) Stephen Alambritis (politician) Frankie Farley (musician) Geoff Arnold (cricket) Gypsy Re Bethe (musician) Colin Petersen (actor and musician) Ian Buckley (playwright). Plus many more.

If you have any film footage of your time there we (andysvideo) are happy to convert it to Video and add to the other Elliott Videos here. There is also an excellent ex Pupil website I set up in 2001 at http://www.elliottonians.com
