The Preston titles and badges look interesting. Would the titles be considered mid 50ís era, or say pre 1960?

Back in the 1920's Egyptian themed jewelry was a popular fad, thanks to Howard Carter and King Tut's pyramid and the like, sphinx brooches and neck pendants including cheap brass ones. Singer produced sewing machines decorated with sphinx transfers.
The cheap quality jewelry, the sewing machines, they were still quite easily found in junk shops in the UK 20-25 years ago.

Hi Irish
So hard to date the cadet badges.
My thoughts would be 1960s but possibly a little earlier.
The school was opened in 1937. Not much info around on the cadet units but they were very popular post WW2 for a few decades. So your time line may fit.
The other thing with the cadet badges is that the design rarely changed. So it could have been worn for many years.

Interesting photo bc, the guy is wearing Australian Garrison Artillery (AGA) badges as you have stated but he is wearing Permanent Force uniform. I wonder if he is one of the AGA blokes recruited to fill the vacancies in the Royal Australian Garrison Artillery (RAGA) manning details in the fixed defences after the formation of the Siege Brigade.

If so this might date the photo to mid 1915-end 1916 when full dress items like the forage cap were abolished for the RAGA. Also, to volunteer for service as a reinforcement to the Siege Brigade you either had to enlist in the RAGA, or have spent a year with your militia AGA unit.

So it might put a bit of a date range on the photo.

I might have to wipe the egg off my face I'm afraid bc, saw a postcard on our favourite on-line auction site that also had AGA badges being worn on similar uniform so I had a look through the history of the Tasmanian artillery published a few years ago and sure enough there appear to be AGA blokes wearing the same uniform.
