Can you identify this logo?

It is from a school that had this logo in about the 1920s. My mother went there, but I do not know where it was or what it was called. i had no luck with a reverse image search. can you help me? TIA

What town?

What town or region did she live in? That should narrow it down.

It could be S....... High School.

So a town or district in the UK beginning with S.  That narrows it down hardly at all.

Thanks Peter. That looks very similar except that mine doesn't have the straight across the middle of the H. Also this is from a school photo which includes my mother and i don't think she was anywhere near Sheffield in he r youth. It could have been Hastings, but i can't find anything there similar.

This is the current logo of the Hastigs Sacred Heart, so it could be the one

however the one from the Sheffield School is closer

I contacted them on FB, and they confirmed this was their logo at that time.

Re: Sheffield High School for Girls

Well researched.

How did you get to Sheffield?  Did you try all the major UK cities and towns beginning with "S"?

I had missed that (or rather forgotten about it).

Congratulations to both of you, then.

The only thing is that I know my mother did not go to school in Sheffield. But did in Hastings.
