Default Complete Novice - Possible late 1880's

Hello. My name is Shirley and I am doing research on an Industrial School in Hereford. We have discovered in one of the local books the attached picture and wonder if there may be someone out there who knows a bit more about this uniform than me. The young lads are the 'inmate's' scholars of the Industrial School at that time and we believe the chap with the dark beard and 'boater' was the 'Superintendent' of the school - as we have only seen one photograph of him with grey hair we are assuming that this is around the time that the school first opened - which was 1874. I have been told that the headdress of the Soldier is of 'Shako' style - that's all I know.
Thanking you in advance.
