[Talk-GB] Quarterly Project : Schools - Multiple Schools on one site

I've no idea if it does but it sure feels like Northwich Hartford Campus takes the biscuit with respect to shared resource. 6 schools plus the college http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/53.2475/-2.5302. I have some cleaning up and more work to do on it which I'm leaving until I've done a ground survey.

My feeling is that where the whole area is owned by the local authority then it's appropriate to mark the whole area as one entity as amenity=school and then place the individual school info on the relevant school building.

One possible approach is simply to draw each school's boundary so as to include the shared area (i.e. overlapping). If that's not possible, then it implies that the shared area really 'belongs' to one of the schools and the other one merely 'borrows' it at certain times.
