Thank you to Morag Sinclair for finding this photo and for allowing it to be displayed here.  Thank you also to Brendan Pollitt for sending me a copy of the photo.

Brendan is one of the teachers at Hermitage Park School.  He is arranging an exhibition to celebrate the school's centenary in 2010.

"Here is an indoor photo of the school, produced as a postcard. The photographer is not known, and the card has not been sent through the post.

We think that the photo was taken on the first day of the school, in May 1910"

Around 1913

Here is another early photograph of the school.  This one shows one of the classes at the school, with the school building in the background.  It was probably taken around 1913:

Thank you to Bill Watt who attended the school from 1934 to 1941 for offering a photograph of a class at the school, taken probably around 1939/40.  I have passed on this offer to Brendan
