Only done a quick scan, but Pershore High School no longer has just a
node. Not sure on some others since need to check objects to match on of
multiple names. Don't think any body else is editing these schools
currently? But *I* would appreciate breaking up the commits so we don't
end up with all 1164 on the one change set? :(

The wikidata tag is in addition to the existing wikipedia tag?

An interesting aside is just how many of these places while present as a
node in Google have no indication of the location of even the approach
road to the school let alone where to park. Perhaps once the project is
complete we might convince the DoE that a much better map is available?
