Pupils with teachers - early 1900s

We have no further information on this photo, which was badly damaged when it reached us.
There are about sixty children here, plus two teachers. Whether this was the whole school at the time
cannot be determined, but certainly there are mixed ages in this photo, so it isn't a class photo.
