Another point is that of using the existing ways to build a new
boundary. The first two schools I hit both had a different probable
boundary created already due to other landuse boundaries. But I would
only add schools that I have some knowledge of. Armchair mapping without
some local knowledge is not really practical.

But I'll not be helping anyway as I can't stand iD ;)

https://schools.mapthe.uk/assign/20402/ I've added as per the quarterly
project guide lines http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/41245245 and
tidy up adjacent detail ... but I'm not sure why the school buildings
are not showing filled in :(
