I was at school in the 1950's and we all looked very much like that. The relaxed poses indicate a date later than the 30's so I would go for 50's or early 60's.

I don't think it's as late as that AJ...I think I can see some Knitted ties and I associate those with the 30s but I could be wrong, but thanks for your suggestion.

I think its very much earlier than the 1960's. I don't ever remember seeing boys in the 60's or the 50's wearing the sort of boots the boys at the right-hand end of the front row are wearing!

Yes Jen I'm inclined to agree with them not being worn in the 60s but I do remember seeing some boys wearing them in the late 50s but not necessarily the same style. One lad I knew would wear "Hob Nailed" boots to school and used to chase me, and kick me in the shins  :-\ but not sure if they were the same style as seen in the school photo.

Definitely pre WW2. I can remember from late 1940s onwards  :-X

1920s here:

That's a great link Gadget but I think mine is a bit later...but not much. Thanks for your input.

I think 1920's is about right. Gadget mentioned the tie pins & although they were worn on & off over a period of time post war-1920's was the most popular.
Is there a stamp box on the back ?

Aw thanks Jim..that's great....I was between the two decades but wasn't sure which...the stamp box is a plain triangle.
Thanks for your help  :-*
