Old school photograph probably guessing taken 1890's

Gt Yarmouth

By Shirley Waring

Can anybody help with this photograph?
I found this unmarked school photograph while going through my late father's possessions.  I am hoping that I am looking at my grandmother as a school girl.  She was born in Gt Yarmouth in 1884.  Can anybody recognise the location?
Kind regards

Hello Shirley, I don't know if you had any replies; I have just come across your photograph. My grandfather was born in St Peters Road in 1880 and I have a schoolbook of his marked "British School, Yarmouth". It is undated but from the quality of the drawing and mapping inside I would say he would be about 10 or 11, so a bit older than the children in this picture. Did anyone identify what school it was? I would love to find out more about his life as a child with his 5 siblings.

Hello Susan. Sadly you are the only person who has replied to this posting. Both my dad's parents were born and lived in Gorleston-on-Sea, Gt Yarmouth so I was really hoping somebody would recognise the building - obviously long since demolished or even bombed during WW11!

Shirley, I have a very similar photo of my grandfather, who lived and died in Gorleston. The photo was taken in 1913 it has a chalk sign saying St Andrews year V. My photo looks like it was taken in the same place. Mike

Thanks Mike, you have given me hope that this photo does include my Grandmother as she lived close by on High Street, Gorleston on Sea - I can't find a St Andrew's School on Google but you have proof that there was one once. How do the clothes compare with your photo - I was guessing my photo was taken about 1900-05?
