Many of the images are selections from scans made of printed material ( The Surbitonian magazine issues, or press items in the Surrey Comet as examples). Photo editing has been used to descreen, brighten or sharpen such images – with varying success.

Whenever possible any other source(s) than the above are acknowledged in the  image captions. Especial thanks to the following sources

  • B.Robertson-Dunn and his website and all who contribute material to it. Go to
  • Dave Littleproud’s unique collection of scans from several of the 1950’s and 1960’s issues of The Surbitonian, together with school photos from that period.
  • Phil Seaman for the 1954 full School Photo and 1957 / 1959 Speech Day programmes.
  • Tim Harrison for his 2011 photos of The Main School, Hall and the old Stable Block of Hollyfield School
