Looks like you are still using your original data?

St. Mary's 'ceased operations at the end of the summer term 2014' (from
wikipedia ;) )

Some of the OSM links are to the original building rather than the campus.

I've not got up as far as the north of the county yet where the
buildings need changing, but I had thought that wikidata was looking to
import the entire edubase data to fill in he gaps in the schools list,
so personally I would view the small number of current matches for
Worcestershire as a crib sheet to add the wikipedia pages and wait to
add the 'DfE URN' linkage once that process has completed.

The question really is should both the wikipedia link and the wikidata
link exist? Malvern St James has the correct wikipedia=en:Malvern St
James and that is the one which should gain the wikidata tag as well or
should the satellite sites duplicate all the main site tags? This is one
of the areas we are still tidying up on the schools project. But I am
now at the point where adding the wikipedia tag, but this opens a can of
worms since https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Schools_in_Worcester
only lists some schools and some of them are now closed ... so where
does one stop cross project?
