Sarah Hickey was my grandmother, I am researching my family tree and I think the young boy in the front row,third from left is her brother Percy Hickey, my great uncle.

How fortunate to have great photos of your mother at school before the First World War, and to be able to name the children. I suspect your mother looked after them very carefully. Just wish I had some of my own relatives from that time, thank you for publishing them.

Just stumbled across this gem of a photo.Half the people on this are family!
I attended All Hallows from 1977 to 1980. A glorious time. I would love a photo from that time frame.
