Wirksworth schoolgirls 1892

I have come across a mysterious photo, which might be of a girls' school in Wirksworth in 1892. The Legend on the back has been corrected by a different hand. Can anyone help to identify the school or any of the girls, please contact . There is a place called Biddulph in Staffordshire, but nowhere in Derbyshire. The original photo is rather faint, but has been darkened and the contrast improved electronically.

Photo taken:1892/3
