I estimate that this picture can't be much later than 1900, judging by the extreme leg-o'-mutton sleeves on the girls' dresses and the hair swept up and back. I know that Tain would have been a few years behind southern fashions but still, 1890s at the latest!

Mr Hutt was Rector from 1887-1919 (his 32 years being the longest serving Rectorship). In this photo he does look quite young which may also indicate an early date.
The teacher in the front row would be Mary A.C MacKay Dux of School 1911. Verifying
