I was working through some schools last night and found this example:
in Wivenhoe. Already well mapped in my opinion with the fhrs:id already on each school's building, so I just added ref:edubase to each building too. In this situation the amenity=school tag is on the site with the individual schools within the sites having the tags that apply to them (but not an additional amenity=school tag). 

There are a few more examples in Colchester where neither school is currently mapped where I've added a note that a survey is required to see if they can be distinguished, or whether they might need to end up as two nodes in the same building even.
