Scroll down to the rugby headshot photos and you see the portcullis badge worn on a lapel. This may be your pinbacked 'collar'. Does yours have the SA scroll?
Here is the school prefects badge, worn on lapel & cap, different to the QWR FSC/Collar badge,

If you count the voids there are 4x4 or 4x5 in this picture.

Again no SA scroll unlike the QWR badges,

I wasn't saying the badge in your link is the badge I show, your badge is the school OTC/CCF? badge (worn by prefects in a photo in the book) the badge I show is the school prefects badge, shown simply to illustrate the difference,I'll dig out a photo sent to me by the school,

This is not a design that I have seen before but the slider is original so it's for a cap. I surmise it was an early OTC badge and worn after the QWR collar which is similar in design.

Is this by any chance an Emanuel School OTC badge? I found it today in a Midsussex field while metal detecting-Canadians and other troops camped there during WW2.

Yes it is. Where was it found? Pre WW1 and interwar a lot of OTC summer camps were held at Tidworth Pennings on Salisbury Plain and the surrounding area.
