This Video is for all those who cannot get to see the school as it is today. I hope it brings back memories for you

Background: As a former Pupil and was lucky enough to be allowed to look around the school, some forty years after I had left it. I was even allowed to photograph some areas. I was astonished how little it had changed, but also saddened by how it had deteriorated. I realised that others might have the same nostalgia as me and started this website. As its popularity grew I noticed that many ex pupils now lived abroad and decided to make a video of those pictures available to all.

A few years later former teacher Peter Payne sent a Clip from a cine film. It shows a School Journey to the Alps in 1984. I edit it with some computer software and then again posted it on line for others to view.

Then during the summer of 2013, I was given access to the old Elliott School buildings, just before the builders start to refurbish it ready for the new ARK Putney School to take it over sometime after 2015. this made 3 videos which again I posted on line for everyone to share.

Most recently I was invited to attend the Annual Remembrance Service. This was however al little special, as it was the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War. It was followed by an update by the new Head, regarding the building's refurbishment. 

I have posted all the Videos in the free section of my video website and I have also made a playlist, a link to which is shown below.
