Can anyone help identify this tree please? It is about 3.5 metres tall and is a mature specimen. The photos were taken in September. It is showing no sign of losing any leaves

My first guess would be a holly, its difficult to see the buds,if you had a picture of them, it would help to narrow it down, also underside of leaf and close up of leaf surface. Second guess would be a Pittosporum, P. tenuifolium 'Gold Star' looks very similar though leaf is possibly smaller.

The picture isn't too clear but if there are 5 leaves on each stem and red berries then it could be this in the Umbrella Tree family. The spines are very pronounced but this could be due to its' age.
Of course I'm happy to be wrong!

If it's outside in the UK then I am definitely wrong but otherwise could it be a Tibouchina?

Thank you for your suggestions Anna, Maggie and Andrew
I think the suggestion of the pittosporum tenuifolium is probably correct - mystery solved!
