Sadly, it is not amongst these ones shown here. There must be hundreds of unidentified livery buttons out there.

Can't help with identity but it is very similar to one Firmin produced.

Regents Park Boys Home & Industrial School in London had a beehive as the central design on badges, I dont know if they were worn by boys or staff.

(Edit - a beehive was worn as the central device of the metal cap badge worn by boys in uniform).
